Exmerge - restore a PST file from a different domain (exchange 2003)

I am running a test Exchange 2003 domain. I want to import a PST mailbox from another domain. Both domains are 2003 and Exchange 2003. I have done an Exmerge (export) from ServerA (old domain) and I want to import using Exmerge import into ServerB on new different domain B.

Can this be done? I have been trying and trying and it keeps crashing on the beginning. I am thinking it is user rights for the account I am using but I am not sure.

You should be able to import the PST file fine through ExMerge. I have done this plenty of times when migrating users from their old server to our hosted environment. Have you checked the ExMerge log (C:\exmerge.log by default) to see why the import process is crashing?

Did you rename the PST file to be imported to match the alias of the account you are importing the mail into?

Great to confirm I can import those items. I have now worked on this for hours and still cannot get it to import. I created new groups and new accounts. I even removed the inherited security so I could remove the SEND AS and RECEIVE AS deny value.

I have attached my log. May you can see something.

Have you checked the permissions on the PST file you are importing to ensure you have full access to it? Also make sure the account you are using to perform the import process has full access to the user's mailbox as well.
