ExMerge would be your best bet to import mass quantities of pst files into the exchange server.

Otherwise you can do single PC imports by configuring Outlook to connect to the Exchange server, then go to File->Import and Export->Import from another program or file->Personal Folder File(.pst)

You don't need to run Exmerge on each client machine.Just run exmerge and it will ask you for the path of PST's.

It will list all the mailboxes on the exchange server and will import appropriate PST's in to each mailbox, provided the PST's name is as per the mailbox's given name.

DOWNLOAD the utility.  As I recall, it has documentation within it.

I've not used it to put mail into exchange, but if it works like it does pulling mail out of exchange, you will get everyone's PST file and rename it after their user name and put them in one folder.  Then run exmerge and it will import everything.

This has some important notes on using ExMerge:

Read the notes and documentation on it - you have to copy that file from the Exchange installation to the folder in which you have Exmerge.

You need to copy exmerge.exe and dll file to exchsrvr/bin directory.

We can probably walk you through it, but we could underestimate or overestimate yourskills and innocently or absent mindedly omit a detail or two - read the documentation, then ask us more questions if you still have them.  As I recall, the Exmerge docs are not very long.
