Hello Albert,
The best method is to add the new server to the same Admin Group, and
create new Mailbox Stores. Then move all mailboxes from the old server
to the new server. You can move mailboxes using the Active Directory
Users and computers tool. You can move multiple mailboxes at the same
time using this method. Once you are done moving the mailboxes, you need
to remove the old server from the organization. If this is the first
exchange server in the organization, you have follow few procedures.

Hi all

I have an exchange 2000 server running on Windows 2000 server.  As the
hardware of this server is getting old, I want to build a new server.  I
do not plan to move to Windows 2003 server nor Exchange 2003 for now.

Can someone give me some advices on how to move the data from one server
to the other?

Here is the setup I have:

Windows 2000 standard
Exchange 2000 standard
   - 25 mailboxes
   - huge public folders
   - customs forms
