export emails from exchange 2003 to 2013
Posted on 2014-04-06
This is the scenario I have for the second time and this time I want to make sure I don't run in to the same problems as the first time.
I have an SBS 2003 server that needs to be replaced to an Exchange 2013 SP1 running on a 2012 Domain.
I don't want to do any upgrades to 2011 first or any cross configuration.
All I want it's a brand new server with a brand new domain that has nothing to do with the old server.
I will create the users one by one on the new server and I will create the emails for them on the new exchange.
The problem I had last time is that I export all emails from 2003 by using exmerge then I import each pst using outlook.
Problem was that exmerge has also export the x400 mailbox and on Exchange 2013 that did not exist on the user mailbox. Users had problems sending internal emails to each other.
I was wondering if I should delete every X400 email first from the 2003 and leave only the SMTP address then use the xmerge or if is any better way.
