We started the migration process and it seemed to go fine, one users mailbox keeps failing with errors. I think it is due to the todo list or the task list. I have exported the calendar, moved all email to pst files but it still fails. I have run scanpst and tried to run again. still no luck I need to get this mailbox moved its for the president of the company and he's very upset additionally the mailbox is residing on the old server cannot receive the email I don't know if the SMTP connector was somehow altered during the migration

I'm very much up against the wall on this if anyone has any suggestions on reconfiguring the MX records the firewall or the Small Business Server 2003to allow those still on 2003 to send and receive mail they cannot at the moment.

This is a great tool--not free. I too have had horrible experiences migrating and many times I simply had to do it manually person by person using PST files until I found this and it makes it quick and easy. https://www.migrationwiz.com/

catastrophic failure.
One mailbox stopped the entire process and caused the entire thing to crap out on me.
I'm now trying to either rebuild a temp server to perform an exchange restore from our online backups or recover the existing store and use a third party tool to extract the remaining mailboxes.

I ended up killing the remainder of the moves and the old Exchange 2003 was toast.

Purchased lepid to manually move the remain mailboxes over.
