I have tried this before and as far as I could tell, due to the set up of Exchnage 5.5 this cannot be done. I had to resort to setting the mailbaoxes up manually and importing the mail data into the new mailbox. Sorry I couldn't be of anymore help.

As far as I know you can move mailboxes between servers in a site but not between sites.

A site in an administrative unit almost like an NT domain

Hope this helps

the way to do it is to copy all the mail from each user to .pst files. then, in the profile, make a personal folder message store and a exchange message store and copy them to the new exch server.

it is tedious but the only way to go.

The EXMERGE utility will do this , if you have the appropriate rights in both sites. If you don't, you can still do it as a 2-step process. One to create the PST's from the old server, and 2nd to import them to the new site. You can do 1 mailbox , or batches. EXMERGE is on the MS website, and on the Resource Kit.

Good Luck
