I need to remove an extisting Exchange03 mailbox from an existing AD account and reconnect it to another AD profile in Server 03.

I need to keep the old AD account temporarily for backup purposes but need the new profile up and running with the existing Exchange profile.

I am running Exchange 03 in native mode, with the "Exchange Tasks" and "Move Mailbox" options available.  What is the best way to accomplish this?

You could do the direct migration using the mailbox move tool if they are trusted domains. if not you could expert all the data into a pst and import back in. You could do it maually through outlook or use the exmerge tool to do it.

Would that migrate the email address as well or just the existing data inside the mailbox?

I need to nuke an AD profile connected to abc@abc.com.  I have a new AD account setup as abc1@abc.com.  I need the new AD profile to be associated with abc@abc.com email profile without deleting the original, nuked, AD.

You can disconnect the mailbox & clear the exchange attribute, create new user & map reconnect the mailbox with different user.
