We are removing our Exchange 2003 server and there are two mailboxes I'm not familiar with "security Administrator" and "quotamessageservice".  What are these and can they be deleted?  or should they be moved?

These don't sound like default mailboxes, they might have gotten installed with an application or been created. I would suggest connecting to them with outlook and viewing the contents of the mailbox. If unsure at that point back the contents up to a PST then delete.

Be sure to check the contacts, calendar, tasks, etc and back those up as well.

Are they unable to be moved to the new server?

Thanks just wanted to make sure.  Yes they moved to 2010.  I'll disable them and see if anything happens.
