Exchange 2016 Edge: Export transport rules from Exchange 2007 Edge/Import transport rules into Exchange 2016 Edge?

    Question

  • Hello, is it possible to export transport rules from Exchange 2007 SP2 Edge and import the set of rules into Exchange 2016 Edge?

    I was provided the below article however the requirement is Exchange 2007 SP3 and I would prefer to not have to apply a service pack.  Does anyone have a workaround?

    I think the article is pretty clear. You have to be at SP3. Otherwise, recreate them on the 2016 server.

  • Hi TGIF,

    As the article had mentioned, Exchange 2007 SP3 is a necessary condition, if you want to migrate the transport rule like that, SP3 must be installed, no other workarounds, otherwise, create new rules in Exchange 2016 as Andy mentioned above.
