The tool for importing PST files to Exchange mailboxes is known as Exmerge. The tool is capable of both importing and exporting Exchange mailboxes en masse to and from a PST file. You MUST ensure that for an import operation, the name of the PST file matches exactly to the name of the user's Exchange alias for the mailbox where you wish the PST file to be imported.

See http://www.exchangeinbox.com/article.aspx?i=88 for more Exmerge information.

And there was me still using Exmerge to do it... It still works so is a partial solution, but Powershell is a better method I guess!

You can rename the PST files into username.pst and use it to import the PST with ExMerge. Username should be the account name of the user.

You should test this before with 1 or 2 users to make sure you do the procedure right. Afterwards, you can get all the PSTs in one folder and group more files in the same import.

Exactly as we have already mentioned above. In fact, Powershell is a much better method of doing the import in E2k7...
