I have been given the task of creating .pst files from about 300,000 .msg files.

I have directories of about 20,000 .msg files per which I want to make in to a .pst file. (total number of msg files to convert is about 300,000 15 directories roughly)

Yes i know I can create a .pst file in outlook and drag and drop but i have the following problmes :-

- 20,000 files in one go outlook falls over when doing over 1,000 files at a time (outlok 2000)
- some .msg file are 'recall message' pop-ups that canot import back to outlook (I don't want them either!)
- I need a bulk quick way of converting them ASAP

Hope you can help me.
