Exchange and .PST Files

Exchange and .PST Files

How do I import my user’s .PST files directly into Exchange without having to log in as the user and import the files via Outlook?

You might be able to use ExMerge in two-step mode to do this. I haven’t tried it, but it could work:

  1. You’ll need to name each .PST file with the directory name of the mailbox in question.
  2. The mailboxes have to exist already—running ExMerge in two-step mode like this won’t create mailboxes that aren’t already there.
  3. You should send an e-mail message to all of the mailboxes before you begin. ExMerge will skip any mailboxes that haven’t been logged into or haven’t received any messages.
