Hi all, i seem to have a problem where by old mailboxes dont seem to have the local move request available, yet newly created accounts do have the option. I believe this may be something to do with the accounts being created on an exchange 2003 server which has been decommissioned. Any ideas how i can rectify this?

thanks in advance
Watch Question

Just to clarify?  Accounts were created on Exchange 2003, they have not yet been moved to Exchange 2010, they are showing in the list of mailbox accounts in the EMC, 2003 server has been decommissioned, by which you mean Exchange uninstalled?


Hi its very strange. I  cant seem to find any trace of exchange 2003 installed on any of the servers. So possibly they have been moved and then exchange 2003 uninstalled. Is there something that could have been missed when setting up 2003?
