  • Hi, 

     

    As of this time there are no tools available from Microsoft do directly migrate QMAIL to Exchange 2007.The best solution would be to migrate through IMAP. You could migrate to an Exchange 2003 server, through IMAP, and later from 2003 to 2007

    Or you could use some third party tools to migrate directly to Exchange 2007.

     

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

    There´s an article of microsoft that you can read here

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/79df6a3a-29a8-4935-b143-8a66c8d082d4.aspx

    The important part is this

    "

    Use the move-mailbox Exchange Management Shell cmdlet or the Exchange Server 2007 Move Mailbox Wizard to migrate from Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server to Exchange 2007. If you are migrating by using migration files or if you are migrating from Exchange 5.5, Novell GroupWise, Internet Directory (LDAP via ADSI), or Internet Mail (IMAP4), you must migrate to Exchange Server 2003 by using the Exchange 2003 Migration Wizard, and then migrate from Exchange 2003 to Exchange Server 2007."

     

    Hope it helps,

    Regards.

    Shafaquat Ali.
