Hi,
I would like to add a second mail server exchange 2010 at our mail infrastructure. Currently we have a server with all roles installed on and would like to add a second server with only  mailbox roles installed on   for load balancing. Moreover, I wonder how I can move mailboxes from one server to another,
thanks

If I understand it I have to set only the mailbox role and that's when the setup is correct?
