Can I migrate 2007 Exchange from an SBS with another 2010 Exchange on same network?

I have a  2008 SBS with Exchange 2007. I want to migrate to a New 2010 Exchange Server on Server 2008R2 Standard and then Migrate the rest of my services off of the Small Business Server and onto Regular Standard Servers. What is the best way to do this and what pitfalls do you foresee?

If you want to build a new Forest for your new servers, you would pretty much have to do a PST Export from Exchange 2007 and import the PSTs to 2010. Alternatively you can add the new servers to your existing domain and migrate with mailbox moves a little more easily. SBS isn't capable of using Forest Trusts, so you can't really do a cross forest mailbox move with it if you create a new forest. http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2881-Migrate-Small-Business-Server-2003-to-Exchange-2010-and-Windows-2008-R2.html is a good guide for migrating from SBS to standard versions of everything. It uses 2003 SBS as the old environment, but there isn't too much difference between migrating from SBS 2003 to 2008 Standard and Exchange 2010 and what you'll be doing. Mailbox moves are managed from 2010 in that scenario and yours, so that should be a good guide for you.
