We are migrating users from one exchange server to another. the users sit in remote sites and use very slow links to connect to the exchange server. Is it possible to use the old ost on the pc for the new exchange server instead of recreating the ost with the new exchange server, which can take some time over a slow link. Basicly can we use a ost file with a different encryption key on the new server ?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When we migrated our Exchange users to a new server the only problem we had with cached mode was users had to connect with cached mode off first because the mail server information did not update unless they did. After they connected then when they re-enabled cached mode everything was fine and a new ost file was not created. So it should not be a problem
There are some instances, when OST files become corrupt or damaged. Recovery of the corrupt files is possible through an OST to PST email conversion application. Through the simple steps PST files can be imported in Outlook for further use.
