You can do this via Powershell at the Exchange Management Shell. Use the Import-Mailbox cmdlet and specify the -PSTFolderPath parameter. Generally, that command cannot be run from the server itself; it needs to be run from a 32-bit workstation with Outlook 2003 or higher installed as well as the Exchange Management Tools. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb629586(EXCHG.140).aspx for details.

Alternatively, you can open Outlook and use File > Import/Export to import from the PST directly using Outlook.

I have been running Exchange 2010 since it came out in Beta in a test environment.     Follow tigermatts instructions about completing from a 32 bit workstation with Outlook and the Exchange 2010 Management Tools.  

There is one other way beyond Outlook and the powershell.   You can now do it from the Exchange Management Console:

Exchange Managment Console -->  Recipient Config -->   Import Mailbox under the actions.

Hi EndureKona,
Was that option only available in the Beta version, i dont have that option in my Actions menu.

First off . . . Tigermatt is incorrect . . . in Exchange 2010 import/export commands must be run on a 64-bit server Which has the Exchange Mailbox Role and Exchange Management Tools installed on it.  It must also have a 64-bit version of Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 installed on it.  And even though the beta version of Exchange 2010 had a graphical interface for import/export the RTM version of Exchange 2010 does NOT, like Exhcange 2007 mailbox imports and exports must be done using the cmdlets . . .
