One consideration/best practice left unsaid is to make sure the users aren't
logged in to the mailstore at the time of the move.  I know it's common
practice not to do that, but it seems a good idea to point it out.

A nice thing about moving them on the same server is that the client doesn't
need a bunch of updating so you can remove the legacy store almost
immediately.  Great way to defrag these server stores...

Should be no big deal Danny, just right-click, exchange tasks, move mailbox.
You can control-click to do several at a time.

The move mailbox tool is even multi-threaded in E2K3.

I would suggest doing it from one of the two servers, though.
