Migrate Exchange 2003 to Microsoft Hosted Exchange without using SSL

I need to migrate an Exchange 2003 email database to the cloud, but currenly I do not have SSL configured on this server.  It seems that using the Cutover Exchange Migration method requires you to have ssl.  I don't have that configured and would rather not have to do that, because that adds one more thing that I have to configure for this.   The database is probably 30 gb.  I can't get access the database until Saturday afternoon at this time.  I will first have to reconfigure the server for SSL so MS can access the database, then begin the migration.  If the database is not fully migrated by Sunday night, then I have to have my users use https on the old server until I get the hosted exchange fully migrated.  It is one step, I wish I did not have to do.
Any ideas?

That was a thought, but talking about a time hog.  35gb of data.  Ouch.

If I were to do the pst's, it would be much easier to do an exmerge from the server vs having to go around to every user.  Many users are owa users only also.  We also have a kernel exchange program that could extract them out.  Can you exmerge the entire exchange database without having to do each one individually.  At least this way, it could be started and work thru the night.

This is not free but its well worth the time; can't recall if https is required or not. Saved me hours of work converting mailboxes user by user to PST files (which does work).

this option worked just great, took a while to sync, but went smooth.
