We have to migrate users from exch 2007 to exch 2010 and the problem is that the users had no limits on their mailboxes but now with 2010, there will be a 2GB limit..
So my question is, we need to stub the users attachments whose mailboxes are over 2GB and was wondering if I should do this before migrating the users or remove the 2GB limit on the dbs on the 2010 and then migrate them and then once on the 2010 servers, then do the stubbing?

Personally I'd reduce the mailboxes to the desired size prior to migration - this will make the migrations quicker and prevent the Exchange 2010 databases being left with a lot of white space to be filled once the attachments are removed.
