Active Directory User Migration

What is the best way to migrate a user from a  2003 sub domain to a  top level 2008? I've used ADM tools before, is this still the best tool to use? How well does this work with Exchange?

Some of our remote sites only have 5 users max, so i am wondering if it just better to remove and re-create them.

However it's not good practice to delete existing users and create them in other domain from the beginning but ...

Yes of course, ADMT is still good MS free solution for that :]

If you decide to delete them and recreate in other domain, maybe this post I helped with, would be useful for you?

Thanks for that, with regards to ADMT, Have you had any experience using that in an exchange environment?

I have not, because I don't work with Exchange :/
But for Exchange Migration you can use ADMT and Exchange Migration Wizard together.
