Assuming that both mailboxes are within same Exchange organization you can try the below command in powershell

Search-Mailbox mary.jane@olddomais.com -TargetMailbox mary.jane@newdomain.com -TargetFolder "Legacy Email"

This target folder is created under a "Recovery" folder created by Exchange to perform this export.

Its just copying the data. Post export, the items will be there in both mailboxes. If you want the emails to be deleted from source mailbox use -DeleteContent at the end of this command

Follow the below steps to get the legacyExchange DN and add it to new account

1. Get-Mailbox mary.jane@olddomais.com | Select LegacyExchangeDN.
2. Copy the value from above command and open the new mailbox properties in Exchange Management Console. Goto Email Addresses tab and Click on Add->Custom Address (you need to click on small downward triangle beside Add)
3. Paste the legacy DN copied value from above step and paste in Email Address and give the email type as X500

I prefer Search as its single step but it depends on your convenience. Both do the same.

Yes..you might want to check for custom attributes, if any. And definitely the permissions.

By permissions I meant if any user had permissions on the mailbox. The folder structure will remain the same as source. But a new folder will be created as "Recovered - ..." Under that folder there will be Legacy Mail and under that all Inbox,sent items etc..
