Managing Recipient Settings

Move a Mailbox

You can move a mailbox to a different server or mailbox store. Moving a mailbox is helpful when you need to adjust server workload as the number of Exchange users in your organization fluctuates.

To move a mailbox:

  1. Start Active Directory Users and Computers
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.
  2. In the console tree, expand the Windows 2000 domain. Double-click Users, or double-click the node that contains the recipient information you want to modify.
  3. In the details pane, right-click the user, and then click Exchange Tasks.
  4. In Exchange Task Wizard, click Next, select Move Mailbox, and then click Next. The current location of the user's mailbox is displayed.
  5. To specify the new destination for the mailbox, in the Server drop-down list, select a server, and then in the Mailbox Store drop-down list, select a mailbox store. Then click Next.
  6. In the final screen of Exchange Task Wizard, verify that the information is correct, and then click Finish. If the information is not correct, click Back to correct the information.
