How to export data from Exchange General Purpose Folders

Hi,

I have Exchange 2003 and use Public Folders with Outlook, no problem.  I have one General Purpose public folder tree (with one store) which contains calendar, contact and email items.  I want to export this information, ideally as a PST, so that it can be loaded into Outlook 2003.  Currently people access the information through Outlook Web Access.

Any help would be appreciated!

Allan.

Why not export through Outlook.
Just navigate to the public folder then in outlook file thne import/export and you can choose a .pst.

Thanks ryansoto but the public folder is General Purpose type meaning that Outlook can't open it as its not MAPI.

I have managed a bit of a work around:
- Mounted both folder stores as Virtual HTTP servers within Exchange (protocols--HTTP)
- Installed Webdav
- Opened both folder stores through Webdav (IE.  File--Open--Open as folder)
- Copied information over.  This worked ok for calendar and mail items but doesn't display contacts, better than nothing though!
