Is the Exchange server a VM?  If so, right click on it and Export.

Or are you talking about mailboxes?  If so, Google Export Mailboxes Exchange 2010 and you'll get a TON of links and information you can follow.

Here's one:

And if you don't mean either of these, then please be more specific.

There are also lots of third party tools that can do this for you. I'm sure some vendors will be along shortly to mention their specific products.

Are you going to move only user mailboxes or whole server with system mailboxes and arbitration mailboxes too ?

If you need complete server migration from one Exchange to other here is very good Step-by-Step Microsoft article about this:
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

If the Exchange version would be same, you could copy over the database and mount it on another server.
However, given the difference, the available options are:
1. Cross-forest migration
2. Normal data migration (mailbox move) between servers.
3. PST export/import
4. 3rd party tools.

I mean, I want to move mailboxes, Two servers are VM , But are not same.
I followed step-by-step Microsoft article , Unfortunately I did not succeed.
Tom CieslikIT EngineerCommented:
How many mailboxes we're talking about ?
It there is not much, maybe for you would be better export them to PST file, then Import to New Exchange when users will connect to it ?

Zahra, would you mind sharing how you succeeded? You said you were using the Microsoft article (provided by Tom?), but have marked Lee W's answer as the only correct solution. If you could give some more detail it would help other in the future.
