    Thanks for the ready answer, but I hoped to succeed in contacting someone that had already effected a migration from MS Exchange by ZCS Migration Wizard; to use of his/her experience and of his/her suggestions.

    I've done a conversion from Exchange to Zimbra Open Source version. I just ran the wizard and it copied all the user contacts and mail to the new server and provisioned the accounts. For me, that's all there was to it. Nothing dramatic and does exactly what it said.

    Thank you for having answered me, would I like to know how you have created the MAPI profile on the MS Exchange server, the documentation on the subject Microsoft is rather smoky:

    The link you have posted is incorrect, it should be http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306962/en-us

    To answer your question, no I didn't create an additional profile as I already had one for testing - I used that. If you find the MS instructions confusing then there's a set of instructions here or a free utility here that can create MAPI profiles. It should be OK but you use that at your own risk, I can't be responsible if your PC blows up or it eats your email. Make sure you have a backup first.
