One of our users has inadverdently all of her outlook files stores locally as .pst files. How do I get these files over to her exchange mailbox. I know how to change the location (outllok>tool>e-mail accounts etc.) but what do I do after? And where to I go to grab the .pst files?
Thanks

Look at the bottom of the window it will say default store location. Choose Exchange-UserName

search the hard drive to find the pst. depending on how complex the pst is the easiest way might just be to open it in outlook alongside the exchange mailbox and drag and drop things.

Another way to do it would be to archive all of her current email then do a drag and drop

Thanks bharrington83 but there is no default store location t the bottom of the Outlook window. If you mean at the bottom of the outlook>tools>e-mail, I already know that. If I change the deafult location to the exchnage mailbox, it only stores those emails from that point forward.  My problem is getting all the prior emails from the .pst file into the exchange mailbox. Regarding your second post, I'm going to see if jcurtis can help me. If not, I'll go your route.

Hi jcurtis. I searched and found the .pst Outlook file, opened Outllook in the Exchange mailbox default location, and tried to drag and drop. Nothing doing. It just cretaed an email with the Outlook.pst as an attachment. Any suggestions?

The reference was to drag and drop was to move the content of the PST file, not the actual PST file itself.
If you know where it is then use the Import wizard in Outlook to import the contents of the PST file back in to Exchange.
