I am setting up a new server (2012R2) and Exchange 2016 and a new domain.  I need to import the mail from a Exchange 2010 server.  Are there any major hurdles I need to know about

Nope.  Just a standard migration.  Exactly like you'd do if you were going to Exchange 2013.

My buddies at MS call Exchange 2016 Exchange 2013 SP2.

I've done several of these migrations and they have been very smooth.

Just take your time and make sure you test with test accounts before you move live users.

Will the Exchange 2010 and 2016 be in the same domain?

No - the old domain started as SBS2003, then went to Server 2008 - it was a bad idea to begin with but I had to get them more than 75GB of mail space.  Now I feel like the best way is to start clean

Ok.  Then this should be fairly easy.

Just stick build your new environment, get everything working.

Set up your "new" users and mailboxes, export all of the old mailboxes to .PST then import them into the respective mailboxes on the new environment.

Hi there,
Microsoft has a neat deployment assistant which walks you through the entire migration

If you're creating a new domain, i believe going through disjoint namespace may work in your scenario

I have the server built and patched, it is loaded with Exch2016, it is in the clients office on a different domain.  I can't attach Outlook 2010 client on a terminal server.  It makes the initial connection in ControlPanel/Mail but won't load when launched.  I can get to it with OWA and it is sending mail

I have the server running and in production.  Having a few small problems.  When a user clicks REPLY-ALL on a message it can't find the local users

Does the reply-all work in OWA?  Or is this just happening in Outlook?

Outlook 2010 should work fine, however, do you have a new client you cant test with?
