We are migrating many Outlook 2003 users from PST's to Exchange 2003. We create an Exchange profile and import the PST into the Exchange account. Following the import the users cannot receive any mail until the local copy of their mailbox is synced out to the server. Unfortunatly since these are slow connections, this is taking 8 hours or more.

Does anyone know of a better way to make this process go faster so we dont have to shut down our users for a day or two while we migrate their mail
