Hey....it's not just MS...it's a pain to migrate data from one hardware to
Official MS path:
That's the official route...DO NOT FORGET TO BACK UP THE PUBLIC FOLDERS AND
THEM TO A PST FILE!!!!

For moving data from the old SBS server to the new one you could export
Exchange data with Exmerge. The Exmerge tool is located on the first CD of
SBS 2000 and there you will also find a readme file with instructions how to
use Exmerge. If you do not have to many users Exmerge is the best way to go.
Exmerge does not export public folders, you have to export those to a *.pst
file from within Outlook.
An upgraded version of the readme file can be found here:
