Exchange2003MBtoMEU.vbs, the working version

As some of you may have noticed, when downloading the Exchange2003MBtoMEU.vbs script to convert Exchange 2003 Mailboxes to Mail Enabled Users from the Microsoft community forum, this script is not complete.

Here you can find the complete version of the script. I hope this helps anyone searching for it.
