Migration Wizard, provided with both Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Service Pack 2 (SP2), has all of the mailbox migration capabilities of previous versions, with the added capability of migrating from one Microsoft Exchange organization to another. Previous versions of Migration Wizard allowed you to migrate to Exchange 2000 from other mail systems, such as Lotus cc:Mail, Lotus Notes, and GroupWise. These options are still available in the Exchange 2000 SP1 and SP2 versions of Migration Wizard, but the SP1 version also allows you to migrate mailbox data from an Exchange 5.5 organization. The SP2 version extends the capabilities of the SP1 version by allowing you to migrate from one Exchange 2000 organization to another Exchange 2000 organization.

This article describes the Exchange 2000 SP1 and SP2 versions of Migration Wizard, provides methods and tips for their use, and discusses common migration strategies. This paper also follows the fictitious Lucerne Publishing Company as it migrates from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2000 using Migration Wizard with Microsoft Active Directory Connector (ADC).
