I have a small network approximately 30 mailboxes.  I need to move the mailboxes from 2007 to 2013.  The 2013 up and running.

I have read the articles on moving 2007 to psts but you need to have a 32 bit system which I do not.  Can I use Exmerge.  Any other ideas?

Sorry, I guess I will have to ask where you see the info that only a 32 bit version of Windows/Outlook (which?)will create usable .pst files from Exchange 2007 mailboxes?

Regarding exmerge, it works well but can be tedious if the mail boxes are bigger than 2 GB.  You have to choose a range, usually a date range to export to .pst files that are less than 2 GB.  With large mailboxes this can take some time.

Why don't you simply run the move mailbox wizard in Exchange?  Are you planning to bring down the SBS box completely afterwards?

The Powershell help for Export-Mailbox states that you need the 32bit Exchange management tools.
I tried all sorts of ideas to get round this, but in the end gave up and tracked down the only x86 Win7Pro pc in the company and installed the tools.
The following worked perfectly after that:

Export-Mailbox -Id ANOther -PSTFolderPath X:\MB\ANOther.pst -BadItemLimit 20 -ReportFile X:\MB\ANO_Archive_Report.xml -DeleteContent

Open in new window

Yes, the server will be brought down once this is finished.  Can I merge the mailboxes into the new system?

Are you bringing up the new exchange server is the same domain as the SBS  server?  Or it's own domain?

It's own Domain.  I have installed the management tools on a XP notebook I found.  I was going along great.  Doing one mailbox at a time.  Last night it did updates and now I cannot get the global address book.  I'm thinking about uninstalling the update!

Hi Larry, I'll send you the links.  It is a great tool if you can find a 32 bit machine.

Hi Larry,  Above are the URL's for the export/import of the pst files.  The export worked great.  I'm about to start the import.
