I want to extract mailboes from Exchange 2000 using EXMERGE.  The program runs fine but fails on the extraction.  I am selecting option 2 and only want to run the part to create the .pst file.  I am running this only selecting a single mailbox until I understand what is failing.  I did try to save the pst to my home folder on another server but the error stayed the same The exmerge.log file data is:

[16:20:04] Using locale 0x409 and code page 1252 to connect to mailbox
[16:20:04] Copying data from mailbox 'Kenneth Strychalski' ('KSTRYCHE') on Server 'EXCHSRV1' to file 'C:\EXMERGEDATA\KSTRYCHE.PST'.
[16:20:04] Successfully initialized MAPI.
[16:20:04] Successfully created profile.
[16:20:04] Successfully initialized MAPI.
[16:20:04] MAPI Logon successful.
[16:20:04] Error extracting information from server DN '' (CMapiSession::GetInfoFromProfile)
[16:20:04] Errors encountered. Copy process aborted for mailbox 'Kenneth Strychalski' ('KSTRYCHE').

do you have send as/receive as permissions to the mailbox store?

the administrator account does not have the send as/ receive as permissions by default.

you need to specify these at the database level.

I'm trying to figure out how to check the permissions you referenced above.  I have never managed Exchange before and admit to no knowledge, although I have been managing a Server2003 network for years

Making the suggested changes has had no effect on the execution of EXMerge.  I printed out the MS KB article and double-checked the suggested security modifications.  We continue to get the exact same error: Error extracting information from server DN '' (CMapiSession::GetInfoFromProfile)
We also re-enabled the user account to make sure that was not contributing.

Your suggestions were what I needed.  The ExMerge is easy to use and does what is advertised, and yes, I had to unhide the mailbox from the address book.  The other hangup was my fault, having to do with what account I was logged in as..  Thanks for all your quick responses.
