OK there are plent of article when migrating exchange 2003 -2010 when in the same domain or network. However, the old exchange 2003 is at another location and I have built the new SBS 2011 (exchange 2010) from scratch. I need to get users mailbox data from old server to new server what is the best way? Am I just best to export mailbox to PST files then bring them into new server that way?
