I recently migrated from exchange 2003 to exchange 2007. I tried to open the contact in EMC and it said they were legacy and I needed to update them for use in Exchange 2007.

I did this and I then went into the contacts and they were blank.

I want to bring up decomisioned E2003 and manually export contacts and import them to

Does anyone know how to do this?

So run this command from power shell?

csvde -f "Location to Output.csv"

How can it get contacts in current enviorment? Would I have to run this on offline exchange 2003 server?

Hello WIZU2,

There appears to be some confusion over exactly what the problem may be.

Perhaps if you could supply a screen shot of the error you receive and where you receive it this may assist in providing a more accurate response for you.

In the meantime, it maybe that you are referring to the address lists and the email address policies.  In which case this article will help you to perform the necessary updates: http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2007/01/11/3397719.aspx
