Exporting and viewing users emails

Is there a way of backing up/ Exporting emails from a previous user through the Exchange Server?

I have someone that needs to search through the previous employees emails. I would rather just export the emails through exchange as a PST file and save it to their workstation. Currently I have always logged in as the user, waited for the mailbox to download all emails, exported the emails as a PST file, and then copied to a workstation or burned to a DVD. Having to setup the user and wait for Outlook to download the entire mailbox is sort of a pain.

Exmerge will do the export for you. Download from Microsoft.com and Google for instructions (it is one of the major tools for Exchange admins - so you will easily find instructions).

why don't you just give that person access to the person's mailbox.

From outlook (I'm assuming your email client is outlook), add this user's mailbox so that he/or she can read this person's email simultaneously)...no need saving emails into PST file, burning into DVD etc.
