You can use a program called exmerge to export the mail to a .pst.  If that will work for you, you can download it at the following link.
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=429163ec-dcdf-47dc-96da-1c12d67327d5&DisplayLang=en

Just install exmerge and run it from you bin directory.  If you have problems running it just let us know.

I should have been more specific, run it from install drive\program files\Exchsrvr\bin.  It will bring up a wizard that is fairly self explanatory.

The download is going to extract the files to a folder on your desktop.  The next thing you need to do is copy the Exmerge.exe and Exmerge.ini to the "install drive\program files\Exchsrvr\bin" directory.  Then just run the Exmerge.exe and the wizard will walk you through.  If you have any question just let me know.

There is a help document that comes with the download in the extraction directory that is fairly good too.

Ok - it worked excpet for nothing copied over.  The ExMerge.log states and error
Error opening message store (MSEMS). Verify that the Microsoft Exhcnage Information Service is running and that you have the correct permissions to log on.
Is there anything else I can do??

Yes, you have to be logging on with an account that has Send As and Recieve As permissions to this account.  Are you logging on to the server with an Exchange Administrator account?  If you are you will need to go into System Manager (for Exchange) and browse to Administrative Groups>First Administrative Group>Servers>Your Server>First Storage Group.  Then you will want to right click on the Mailbox Store and select Properties.  Go to the securty tab and select Advanced.  Here you are going to add Send As and Recieve As rights for your Exchange administrator account.

If you add these permissions and your the user you are logged in as is an Exchange Full Administrator you should be good.
