Move Mailbox Between Sites

by tony.colgrove In reply to Move Mailbox Between Site ...

you cannot move a mailbox between sites in Exchange5.x, that is way only servers in your site appear. If you really need to move it to another site, you can (from a client) copy the mailbox to a .pst. Delete the mailbox, then create a new one, in the new site, and import the pst into the new mailbox. (The ExMerge res kit util, does the same thing, expect you dont use the client)
Problems with this: Users will get NDR's if they reply to the users old messages. All meeting appointments in the calendar will no longer be associated with the rest of the users in the meeting. The users client will need to be touched to point to the new server. The client will not automatically switch to the new server, because it is a "new" user, even if you use the same alias and display names.
