How to copy Public folder data from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010


Mailboxes have been Exported from Domain A / Exchange 2003 to PST and imported to individual Exchange 2010 (SBS) mailboxes in completely new Domain B (on completely separate network).

(NB This was not a migration situation so Public Folder replication was not possible).

Users are now in production in new domain, and need access to Public folder data from Exchange 2003.

Is it possible to copy the old 2003 Public Folder store and mount on the new Exchange 2010, or otherwise export the data, and re-import into the new database?
What’s the best plan of action?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Whilst you can export to a PST and re-import you WILL loose permissions.

You can't just mount a Public Folder data store as the database page size has changed.

Thanks for feedback..
Still rather a 'grey area' as there are several different ideas about this..
Links to 'replication' related articles are irrelevant however, as I mentioned this is not an inter organisational migration.
