Moving Mailboxes

Posted on 2011-09-16
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi EE,

I'm planning to virtualize our MS Exchange 2003 which is running on the physical environment by building a brand new MS Exchange 2010 server.

What Microsoft tool or any that's perfect to utilise for moving mailboxes from MS Exchange 2003 physical environment to MS Exchange 2010 virtual environment?

Appreciate any comment or assistance.

Use the gui if you want, just right click the user and new local move request.... thats it.
Mailbox will be offline while it is move
