Exchange 2007 mail box move

I am needing to move mail boxes from an existing exchange 2007 server to another exchange 2007 server on a different domain....then the first domain will be shut down.  Both domains do not talk to each other.  Their old domain is now just two servers (exchange and DC) and one workstation.

We just took over a small outfit and their existing network was a bit of a mess, all of their old data is moved execpt for their exchange data, and some of it is extensive, very large mail boxes...some over 1Gb....their users are setup on our domain now and they can login and get to everything they need, just none of their old exchange data.  I have held off on setting up all but a test user on our exchange server to see if there is a good way to get this done.

Any help would be great.....thanks.

Is there some Mailbox Quota set on the Old or new Mailbox Database ?
Did you try to increase the Badlimit count and move mailbox so it isnt getting cut-off due to too many corrupted items

its works well for 2010 so it should be fine with 2007

One thing you could consider, depending on the number of mailboxes to be migrated is to just export each users mailbox, setup a new mailbox for them on the new server and then provide them with the .pst of the exported mailbox from the old mailbox to do with as they please. They could attach it in Outlook and treat it as an archive or they could copy mail items into folders in their new account. If you want to start with fresh mailboxes and not have to worry about mailbox migrations than this may be the way to go.

This is what we ended up doing....I was really hoping that we could do the export in a batch but could not find anything that would work.

thanks for the help.
