Hi all,
I'm using MS Outlook 2002 at front end with POP3 email account. IMail server is running at the back end. I want to use the Export utility of Outlook at client-end, to make a complete backup set (.pst file) of the POP3 email account.

Is there any short-cut or a command-line utility to make this task / excercise easier?

Thanks.

The PFBACKUP add-in is probably the easiest solution - http://www.winnetmag.com/Article/ArticleID/40070/Windows_40070.html

That answer is exact and straightforward.  Why a B?

i'm sorry friend.... about it.
you are right to some extent, but I'd asked for a command-line solution WITHOUT any user intervention. And this utility is a good solution in fact, but requires a user intervention. In our requirement, it is quite difficult to support 400+ users in recovery cases. Usually users do not bother to keep frequent backups.
Anyways thanx a lot for your help, I really appreciate. And no hard feelings friend :)

The only user intervention required is a Yes to agree to let it do backups after exiting Outlook.  User intervention, but minimal at best.
I do request an explanation of anything less than an A.  With that given, no problem.
