It can take a while for AD to replicate the move of the user mailbox, so if
you have multiple DC's/GC's then it depends on which DC authenticates them
and which GC they get directed too.

The server that their mailbox was on also has to be up and running as they
will make contact with that server first and then an AD lookup will occur to
locate their mailbox.

I thought if you moved someone's mailbox to a new Exchange 2000 server the
servers were supposed to coordinate and redirect the Outlook client to the
new server the next time the user tries to log in.
I'm getting errors when the user tries to log in after his mailbox has been
moved. Are there any special considerations I should be aware of or
configuring to make this move seamless to the end-users?
