256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry
When you are using the Exchange 2000 Migration Wizard to migrate Microsoft Mail Schedule+ 7.0 data, you need to take certain steps for users to be able to use the migrated Schedule+ data. If you do not follow these steps, the new mailbox owner will not be able to use the Schedule+ data. When you import the .scd file into the Microsoft Outlook client, a password prompt will appear. The password that works is the one from the source .scd file, not the target .scd file as expected. To resolve this issue, follow the steps in the "Resolution" section.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:

You must also modify the Win.ini file on the Exchange 2000 server by setting MAPIX=1 in the [MAIL] section. This problem only affects migration of .scd files from MS Mail.
