We are migrating from Lotus Notes to Exchange 2007.  Our issue has to deal with users that have used Notes Archive files.  We do not want to allow users to create their own PST files but that seems the best way to deal with Notes Archive files.  Convert them into a seperate PST file and just allow the user to look at them there.

Our issue is if we convert these Archive files to a pst can we make it Read-Only so that they may not add any items to the PST.  

Any suggestions or products that might do this for us ?

Hi, tse54re.

I'm afraid that's not possible  A PST file must be writeable for Outlook to open it.  You'll need to print the Notes archive to Acrobat, export them all to the a file system folder that's marked read-only, create a windows help file from the messages, or something like that.
