Hello,

I've got a user that has two email account within exchange and not sure how this happened. Now this user has been getting email sent to one account she doesn't use and had no idea she had. What I need to do is transfer her email from one account to the other and also maybe change her existing email address as well. Can an Expert provide me the instructions on how to accomplish this?

Thanks,

Jaime Campos

am I putting email address that I want to export on User2 and the target will be new email address (User1)? Will the -deletecontent delete all information in user 2 (unwanted email) mailbox? If I don't want to delete anything yet can I leave out that switch?

you can use either the alias or email address
yes, the deletecontent will remove from the source mailbox and can be excluded

export-mailbox email@domain.com  -targetmailbox newemail@domain.com

this is what I got back.

cmdlet Export-Mailbox at command pipeline position 1
Supply values for the following parameters:

II'll try it.

I disabled the users old email account cause i wasn't able to sync her iPhone to new email account. It was partnered with old account. I removed partner relationship with old account and it still tried to setup old account. Now maybe I messed up, but I disabled old account and now I do not see old account within management console. I wanted to leave old account in place so i can forward all emails to new account. Now I'm stuck and not sure what to do. Now the iphone says connection to server failed. It's like it hasn't recognize the new email address on server and doesn't want to connect.

when you disabled the account did you disable thru ad users and computers or thur exchange mgmt console?
the mgmt console removes the mailbox and you'll need to go to disconnected mialbox under recipient configuration to reconnect the mailbox

once you remove the account from the phone you should be able to create a new mail account with the current smtp address for the user
