Let me get this straight. 

You want the Netscape directory to authenticate the user on Exchange 2003

If you're asking can you integrate Exchange 2003 with Netscape LDAP then the
answer is no.  You must have Active Directory installed for Exchange 2003.
What you can do is have them work together and you could look into having a
metadirectory/SSO solution.

If you only want to move the mailstore data to the Exchange 2003 system,
then you can use the migration wizard included with Exchange 2003.  What you
won't get is a way to reconfigure the client (that's client dependent) and a
way to migrate the password.  That's done with a third party tool if you
want the password to come over as well.

This could be done client side as well by having Outlook log into the
netscape mailbox and download all the messages to PST.  Then move it from
that PST to the mailstore on Exchange 2003 or just leave it local and start
fresh on the server while leaving the client with access to the mail data
locally (it's legacy anyway).

Dear all,
