Exchange 2007 Cross Forest Migration

I have an Exchange 2007 environment that needs to be migrated to a new Exchange 2007 server in a new forest.  All user accounts are already created in the new environment so its just a matter of building the new Exchange 2007 and moving the mailboxes from one Exchange Organization to the new Exchange Organization. I have read various articles that state you can migrate Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2007 via the Move-Mailbox cmdlet or the move mailbox wizard. I would like to migrate the users via the move mailbox wizard however, I am not finding any documentation on on how to move the mailboxes across the two forest via the move mailbox wizard.  Any advice on the steps that I need to take to migrate using the move mailbox wizard would greatly be appreciated.

In order to move mailboxes between forests you have to use powershell.  you use the move-mailbox command.  You cannot use the move mailbox wizard to that.

Check out the following technet article. It explains the command in detail.

Thanks for the response!  I have read that same exact article a half dozen times and never noticed the:
Note:
You cannot use the Move Mailbox wizard to move mailboxes across forests. To move a mailbox from one forest to another, you must use the Move-Mailbox cmdlet.
That is embarrasing!
