    Hi eberhardt2329,

    Create a PST in the users mail profile and then copy their mailbox content to the PST.
    Change the delivery options in the services/delivery to deliver mail to the pst file

    All done!

    If this is Outlook 2000, do the following:

    To create a new .pst file:
       Open Outlook
       Click File, New, Personal Folders File (.pst)
       Give it a name, click create, then click ok.

    To change mail delivery to the .pst file:
       Open Outlook
       Click Tools, Services, Delivery tab, and under "Deliver new mail to the following location"
       choose your new personal folders file.
       Then close and re-open Outlook.

    Now, if I remember right, that will automatically transfer all of the mailbox data to your .pst file, but it not, you'll now notice you have a folder in your folder list called Personal Folders (or whatever you called it).  Under that you'll have inbox, outbox, etc....

    All you have to do is make sure you have both the Mailbox and your Personal Folders expanded so that you see all of the subfolders, then one at a time, click on a folder, highlight the contents, and drag and drop them into the corresponding folders under Personal Folders.
