Importing PST File into Exchange Server Client

I installed a new pc. Before installing I saved Outlook 2002 PST files on our local server. Our Exchange Server is not local. We have clients and the mail box was reinstalled by corporate . I need to import the personal files back but I have been told that I need to use a data utility not the regular import from outlook.  Something about clicking on the mailbox in control panel...does anyone know what the procedure is???  Thanks

Xpress...I think you have been hoodwinked...bam-boozled....lied to.  Nothing else is needed other than creating the new email profile...opening Outlook as the user in question...import the old messages back into the user inbox (or whatever folder).

Also you could simply move the files back into the a folder beneath the user inbox as well.  This is slightly different than the import because here the message remain in a separate folder and the original messages are not returned to other folders.

Also make sure you tell Outlook to point back to the users mailbox to store the data or all of the messages will come back to the personal folders and they won't be able to see new mail in their mailbox (that is if you are using Exchange to send and receive mail)
The other way you can do it is by using the exmerge utility. You simply have to rename the pst file to the way your users log in.

Example: Jdoe.pst or JohnD.pst.  You can download the utility from here:
