Here is my situation. I have a site that is running Windows 2008 AD DS, and their email is hosted on a separate email server offsite. I want to install a product that will put a custom signature on all outbound emails, but the Exchange server does not have all the user information on the server. What is the best way to export the user data from their local server and import it into the offsite exchange server?

If PowerShell is enabled on both servers then user PowerShell (Download Quest plugins), export and then import.

What version of Exchange are running on each server? Based on that I can provided a native powershell script that can export users mailboxes. Depending on the version of Exchange will be the outcome of the script syntax.
