Migrating to Microsoft Exchange 2003

Hello Everyone,

I have 8 computers in the network and they are using outlook 2003 as a mail client. We use RHEL 4 server , for incoming mail . I have been given the work to migrate the incoming mail server we are using to Exchange 2003 . We are using Sendmail as a MTA.I think i am sounding naive , please try to understand . I m very new in this thing.

Should i use Microsoft exchange wizard to transfer files and folders ? OR shud i convert to .pst files for each user and then transfer to the exchange server. is there any other way.

Exchange server is already installed in the network.

Thanks and waiting for the reply.

If you only have 8 clients, I think by far the easiest option would be to have each user convert their mailbox to .pst and import it.

Hello chort,

Thanks for the quick reply. those 8 clients have mailboxes from last 3 years . Whats the best way to convert from .pst to .ost files? Is it even possible?
