    Rob,

    You can do this with the exchange server, however it is
    never recommended to do an upgrade on a production
    machine. I would install a fresh copy of the os and
    exchange, then transfer the mailboxes. This takes a
    little more work, however microsoft has some pretty
    detailed documents on this process, and it will save you
    problems in the future.

    Hope this helps!

    Do you have any links to these articles? Is there a tool
    to do this that makes it easier?

    Thanks

    What I have done is ghosted the hdd and put in another pc
    and wondered if this would work. but I see no since i am
    gettig alot of errors and it can not locate the store.

    If I connect the fresh install of window 2000 and
    exchange 2000 to the current network which is nt 4
    server. Will this be an issue or is it easy to do just
    hook up and migrate over info?

    Thanks

    Ok not a problem. I have found the migration wizard on
    the exchange 5.5 and it is weird because it has lots of
    novel and other options but nothing says export out mx or
    mailboxes. Also will I have any issues with the nt4 and
    my new nt2k server when on same network?


    Thanks
