Migrating Users from SBS 2008 to Server 2008

We are looking to migrate users/mailboxes from one of our remote offices in another country on a different domain to our Exchange 2010 server here in the US. The issue is, the remote office is using an SBS 2008/Exchange 2007 setup, which doesn't allow for forest trusts, so we cant do cross forest migration. Are there any other options besides manually exporting and importing PSTs?

Nothing short of doing a migration locally from SBS 2008 to Server 2008 locally, then making the new server a DC, Migrating the FSMO roles, DNS, GC, DHCP, etc.  Then remove the SBS 2008 server.   Then it would support trusts

Lots of work depending on the number of users on the SBS box

Thank you for the info CrisHanna. We only have 50-60 mailboxes on the SBS server so looks like we'll go the import/export route.
