Hi there,

I want to migrate mails from old Exchange 2003 on SBS server 2003 to a new Server 2008 R2 with Exchange 2010.

It's on a new domain, all the users are news (but physically same person).

I wanted to know if i should only make a .PST file on all users and import them on new users on the new Outlook profile ?

Did i forget something ?

Thank you.

With just 12 users I would go with your plan.

Not necessarily an archive.pst.

Export to a PST from the File Menu. In Outlook 2013 this is File menu ==> Open & Export ==> Import & Export ==> Export to a file ==> Outlook Data File (.pst).

Once you have a new profile that is attached to the new Exchange server you can then do an Import.

If you are looking for a more server based utility you can also look at EXMerge.
