Exchange 5.5 - problem moving mailbox within site, from one server to another


We have an old NT box running exchange 5.5.  I am trying to mov
mailboxes to a new server running Windows 2000 with exchange 5.5.  Bot
servers are in the same site.  

I start the move as usual (hi-light mailbox, tools - move mailbox).  
enter the destination server (Windows 2000 server) and click ok.  Th
move mailbox progress box appears with the message "Opening th
information store that belongs to username".  The progress indicato
moves from 0% to 1%m then stops.  The mailbox I am moving is empty.  
have left the process to run for a couple of hours to no avail.  When 
check the application list in task manager, Exchange Administrator i
not responding. 

I've tried this process from the new server also, and the result is th
same.  I've also tried different user accounts with no joy.

Anybody got any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Intermittant connection with Outlook 2003 and Exchange 2005

restore public folder to Exchange 2003 server from backup copy of the Exchange 5.5 server
Hi, Recently a user deleted a folder witnin the Public Folders on the Exchange 2003 server. When I looked at a backup copy from the backup tape, I could not find the pub1.edb file in the MDBDATA folder. I am using Backup Exec. 8.6. Prior to this, I migrated to Exchange 2003 from Exchage 5.5 and changed my Exchange 2003 into Native Mode. I made a copy of the Exchange 5.5 pub1.edb onto an external hard drive,with its utility. Can i use this copy of the pub1.edb for the existing pub1.edb I have for the Public Folders? If so, what are the steps that I would need to do in performing this act...

Pulling email from exchange server with an exchange account
Hello, I was running a 2003 exchange server but got tired of dealing with the spam, ndr and the rest. I had setup the accounts for everyone including myself. Basically I had in outlook my account setup as an exchange account. Now that our corporate mail is hosted elsewhere I need to pull off my email from my exchange account. I have created POP accounts while using the the IP address for pop and smtp so everything is local when asking to pull. I have also went through an archive trying to get messages to save on my PC so I can then use as PST file, with no success. I have also tried looking f...

Exchange / POP3
In short: How does one go about having exchange POP email for users whom have 3rd party POP 3 server accounts? Expanded Reason: I have an exchange server setup here and I would like to get email to my users from a 3rd party POP3 account. I would normally just change MX records and point to my exchange server and have the email go right to the exchange server, but this ISP will not allow me to receive inbound SMTP. So as it stands; I can send email from my exchange server using my internet connection with out any issues, it's the receiving part that has me hung up, and if I co...

virus attacks against Exchange

SQL Server 2008
Hi: I realize that these newsgroups are mostly for technical discussions. So, if it's more appropriate to point me to another site for answers to the questions that I'm about to ask, then please do so. I just learned that there is going to be a SQL Server 2008. I am a certified DBA (MCITP) for SQL Server 2005. Will there be an exam upgrade path from 2005 to 2008? Does anyone out there have any certification information for 2008, even though 2008 is not out yet? Will the SQL Server 2005 MCITP certification expire anytime soon? More importantly, will there be compatibility ...

exchange 5.5 to exchange 2000
Hi, we are considering to migrate our single windows NT domain to windows 2000, then to upgrade the current exchange 5.5 into Exchange 2000 which is currently in the windows 2000 member server within this NT domain.

Concatenate two fields into one in same table
Hi, I have a table made of the following fields: First_name, Last_Name, User_ID. I would like to concatenate the First_Name and Last_Name fields into a new field 'Name' in the same table. So basically creating a new column called Name that has the values of First_Name and _Last_Name concatenated. Is this possible? Many Thanks Hi Callie, > Is this possible? Yes. Is this advisable? No, for a couple of reasons. First, the concatenated result is calculated. In general, you do not want to store the results of a calculation in a table. The reason is that if one of the indepe...
