Have you checked your permissions? Are these two different Organizations or
two different servers (ie. One running 5.5 and the other running 2000 and
moving between the two?)

The Migration Wizard does not work between Exchange organizations.  You have
to use the Exmerge to accomplish that.  You should not have used the ADC to
connect to old organization to the new should have used the Move
Server Wizard to attach the old server to the new organization/server.

I'd imagine that you'll have to remove the ADC, remove the mailbox
association from existing users, and then use Exmerge to dump the mailboxes
out of the old server and import then them into the new server.

I'd strongly recommend calling Microsoft.  I think $200 would be a bargain
given the complexity of this situation.
