  • Hi

    How about using PST

    First Export the mailbox from Exchange 03

    Then Use EMS Command “Import-Mailbox” to import to Exchange 07

    Cheers

    This is probably because your interim database is empty. In this scenario, mailboxes haven't been physically created, and thus, can't be merged.

    I got a couple of the mailboxes to move using the move mailbox command. The users were listed in the EMC has legacy. The next step is to move a bulk of user but I have not found how to do this. My attempt was to create a text files with users aliases but this did not work.
