I am using Outlook 2003, pop3 service (domain email, to get email from an outside hosting company.  Outlook connects to the pop3 server and gets mail.  All users email is stored in .pst files on a file server so it can be backed up.  
I will be installing an Exchange server and want to know if mail can stay in pst files or does it have to be moved to users Exchange mailbox?
If it can stay in .pst file how do I get new mail that comes into the users mailbox to go to their .pst file?
 Will I have to move the .pst files to the Exchange server?
This will be an Exchange 2003 server in a 2003 Active Directory domain.
