Move Mailboxes from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010 Hosting Server

I have a bunch of exchange mailboxes on a very old Exchange 2007 server.  The server was setup using a type of hosting, so the mailboxes are from different companies.

We have installed, in a new domain on a new server, Exchange 2010 in Hosting Mode.  Becuase the mail boxes are in a different domain, I cannot use the built in MoveMailbox options.  I fear the only way I can do this is to export the mailboxes to a pst file, then create a new mailbox on the new server, and import the pst files.

I believe there are powershell commands i can use to do this in bulk?  Perhaps someone could help with these?

Or better still, does anyone have any better suggestions on how I can move these mailboxes? With less manual work, there are a lot of database, and some pretty huge mailboxes.

Thanks for any and all advice.

Since your hosting on different company, try ask them if they can build trust between your forest and their forest:
