Good Afternoon Everyone;

I have been migrating an NT4/exch 5.5 system to 2003/exch 2003. We have
migrated all of the users and all of the files. We deleted the user
accounts from the old domain as they were moved across. We pointed the new
2003 users to the old 5.5 exchange server until the user part of the
migration was complete.

We are now ready to move the mailboxes and public folders (small, so .pst
file will do). We've tried to move some test mailboxes and the following
error appears "Unable to migrate "mailbox" due to ambigous ownership. I
had done this test a few months ago before cleaning out accounts and seem
to remember it worked quite well. I believe we have a problem because we
don't have matching accounts between the two domains and the migration
wizard dosn't understand how to connect the mailbox.

Is this my problem and if so is there a work around. 

Thanks in Advance
