Yes, you can use powershell to export all of the old mailboxes to pst

If you have the space and enough room, you can do this for everyone at once

$users = Get-ADUser -filter* | Select SamAccountName
foreach ($user in $users)
{
Export-Mailbox –Identity $User -PSTFolderPath "C:\PST's\$User Mailbox.pst"
}

Open in new window


or if you want to use a .txt list.

$users = Get-Contents "C:\users.txt"
foreach ($user in $users)
{
Export-Mailbox –Identity $User -PSTFolderPath "C:\PST's\$User Mailbox.pst"
}

Open in new window


or by group

$users = Get-ADGroupMember -identity "Group Name" | Select SamAccountName
foreach ($user in $users)
{
Export-Mailbox –Identity $User -PSTFolderPath "C:\PST's\$User Mailbox.pst"
}

Open in new window

so the idea is to export pst and then import pst to specify users?

Yes, that would probably be the easiest solution, it may not be the quickest but it is by far the easiest.

Have the users been created in the new forest/domain already? Any forest trust between the two companies? You could also look at a Cross Forest Migration as well.
