Subject: [exchangelist] quick & dirty Migration

I need some advice:
I have a client who has an Exchange 2003 server hosted off-site. The
off-site box is in a domain that is different from their local LAN. They
want to run Exchange in their LAN and get rid of the off-site box. What
I thought about doing is install and configure a new exchange server on
the LAN, re-point their MX to their local WAN ip and setup the PTR's
with their DNS host. Once they start receiving e-mail to the local
exchange server, go out to the off-site box and exmerge all their mail
to PST's. I'll bring them back to the local LAN and import them to their
respective mailboxes either at the server or at the outlook client. This
somehow seems too simple, I've tested this in a VM lab and I didn't see
any problems, but I thought I would ask before I leap into this project.
