Have you tried using CSVDE to create the accounts?
Does that give the same result?
What happens if you try to use LDIFDE to modify an already

I am consolidating three NT domains to one domain. Before I arrived, things
were not standardized or even really setup properly (even the Exchange
server has a mispelled name "Exhange1" - no "c"). I have reduced us down to
one domain, but still need to move all the users' mailboxes off of the old
exchange server to a new server in the new domain. I have not been able to
find any good references as to how to get all of the users' old email off
the old one to the new one. The only solution I have come up with is going
to each user's desktop, adding a personal folder, switching profiles for the
new server, and then uploading the contents of the personal folder. I would
really hate to have to do that since we have alot of users. I already tried
using "alternate recipient", but I couldn't get it to work properly. If
someone has done this before, please help me!
