-------------------------------------------------------Just out of curiosity, what would happen if the server were to keel over partway through transferring a mailbox across to the replacement?

You've got a standby piece of hardware that I would stand up as a second XCHG server and move the mailboxes before I did anything else.

I'm going to guess you have a bad raid controller or moboard at this point. I'd probably look at replacing one or both of those while hosting the mail on the temporary server.Performance may degrade a bit depending on how underspecced it is, but much less so than the server dropping dead on a regular basis.
