I have a win2k server with exchange 2000 and I want each mailbox to archive mail over 6 months old to a user.pst file. Can I do this centrally? setting up individual machines is not an option.

I believe that there is some 3rd party software out there that will let you do this.  As far as native to Exchange: no dice.  The only way is to go to each computer.  I had to do it about a month ago due to space issues with Exchange standard.  We ended up upgrading to Exchange Enterprise because it was cheaper than the time it would take to setup autoarchive on each computer.

One of the better 3rd party products is Zantaz EAS.
