I am making a plan to move 2 Win7 pro users from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010. Do I need to export their mailboxes to .PST files and reimport them when they connect to the new exchange?

Or will all their stuff stay on their workstation?

Or what's the best way to do this?

Yes you can export the mailbox from Exchange 2003 to .pst via Outlook and import the .pst when you've connected to Exchange 2010. However I have a few other questions. Are there more users? Have you considered a server migration?

Just 2 users.

So they connect to the new exchange server, I import the .PST files to their mail box on the workstation, and does this sync this imported stuff up with the new exchange?

Yes, your contacts and calendar aswell as mail should be on the server after the import. I dont think any rules will however.

Ok so I'm just being REALLY picky here,

but as long as I export their mailboxes to a .PST and then import them back after they log into the new exchange I won't lose anything right?

Thanks!
