Exchange 2003 to 2007 (Public Folders)

Due to a recent merger, we would like to integrate the old company's existing Exchange 2003 environment into our 2007 system.  In particular, they have 13GB of mail in their Public Folders which they cannot afford to lose. What is the easiest way for us to port this data from their Public Mailstore into ours?

I assume they both are different forest and not sure if you have or want to have Trust ?

If not last option is Outlook Export\Import or use some 3rd party to Export\Import with PST

So you can try with PF interorg but a pain if it doesnt works and the PF isnt that huge and if you have Outlook 2007 or 2010 you can export the data in huge chunks and then Import into new server PF

You PF data size is very small, best option is to export into PST and import into Exchange 2007. Or another option is given here
