Exchange Server 2003 local pst for each account

Posted on 2009-07-08
Last Modified: 2012-05-07

I have an Exchange 2003 server which is also a DC,DNS,WINS server. I want to know if I can create pst files for each email account that's housed on the Exchange server instead of having to go to each station and create a local pst file for their account. FYI, I have email users that utilize this 1 Exchange box in 4 different sites.

Please make my day easier.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You could save them to a file share, but why would you want to create PST files for all of your users?
Are you trying to backup their data?

I am moving them from Exchange to a Domino Server, but they are keeping their Outlook 2003 clients on their stations and I'll be installing DAMO on top of Outlook 2003 so that it can communicate with the Domino Server. I just want to create a PST folder on this server and Dump all the pst's in that folder with the users name so that when they conversion happens they have access to their old emails and folders by opening Outlook and going to: File, Open, Outlook data file and browsing to that particular PST directory on the Exchange/DC server and locating their corresponding pst file.
