Importing PSTs to Exchange 2007
Posted on 2009-02-23
We have an SBS 2000 server that I shall be moving from to an SBS 2008 server. As there are no direct migration routes it is my understanding that the best way to move our mailboxes (10Gb store, 25 mailboxes) is to use exmerge on the SBS 2000 server and then use the import-mail cmdlets to get it on to SBS 2008.
I will be using exmerge to export the PSTs directly to a USB drive as hdd space is one of our reasons for upgrading.
Having created all of the user accounts on the SBS 2008 server so that it effectively mirrors our existing setup, can I just import the PSTs ? or would I need to literally join every workstation to the server and open outlook in order to perhaps finish the setup of their mailbox ?
