I have a user that is leaving our company soon and I need to backup his exchange 2000 mailbox.
I read that I can use the Exchange 2000 Migration Wizard and save his email to a .pst file (which is great and what I need in case he deletes everything before he leaves).
I know I could do a restore etc but this is more proactive and seems simple.
Question is:
If I migrate his exchange 2000 account to pst will his mail stay on the Exchange server and just be copied into a pst file?
or
does it strip/delete/remove the emails and info from his Exch mailbox and just put them in a pst?

Thanks,

Frag
