How do I script the export of mailboxes to PST in a Microsoft Exchange 2003 Enterprise environment where ExMerge is not an option?

I have an Exchange 2003 Enterprise server with 181 mailboxes.  Thirteen of these mailboxes are less than 2 GB.  All other mailboxes exceed 2 GB.
I need to export every one of mailboxes in their entirety to individual PST files.
I would like to use a Visual Basic script for this as I am most comfortable with VBScript.  I would prefer to not have to purchase addons or libraries, unless required.
Using ExMerge is not an option due to its 2 GB limit for PST files.

Thanks in advance,

WT

Looks like someone else has done it:

It's not VB, but, hey, someone coded the entire thing for you!

Hi tntmax,

Would you believe I am trying it today.  Apologies for the delay.

While I am sure this script may work for some, it was unable to do the job for us.  Considering tntmax's leet Google skills were better than mine (he found it, I didn't...) I rate this one a B.

Thanks, txtmax!

tntmax, thank you for the efforts in finding me an answer.  It didn't work in our situation and I had to resort to a rather expensive solution - pay hourly staff to use ExMerge to export the data.  Thanks though! (I could have used salaried staff, but they wouldn't have gotten paid overtime).
