I need to move 100's of Exchange 2000 mailboxes from an old domain to a new domain and onto a new Exchange 2007 server.

Any suggestions on how to do this?

Is your new domain in a new forest, or in a completely separate forest? – Sam Jan 12 '10 at 11:37
The same forest, thanks – Steven Jan 12 '10 at 13:30
Dit you try to establish a trust relationship between your domains, migrate the accounts and use the move mailbox cmdlets? Also you might see this article -> – Maxwell Jan 12 '10 at 15:29

You can't move mailboxes from a server running Exchange 2000 Server directly to Exchange Server 2007. You're going to have to migrate the mailboxes to an Exchange Server 2003 machine first. Once you've done that, Microsoft's How to Move a Mailbox Within a Single Forest article will tell you what you need to do.
