Ive got a client with SBS2K3 in place. Server hardware is unstable and we cannot do a migration to SBS2K8. That is not an option. Luckily, the network is so small client is fine with the idea of manually moving over user data and building new SBS2K8 server fresh and recreating accounts.

The only obstacle I have email from old server. All users have cached mail boxes. I was wondering if there is a way to back up the mail via outlook for each user to a PST. Create the new profile on the desktops, configure outlook for the new server and then import a PST into the new exchange environment via outlook.

I hope this is clear. Essentially:
Old SBS2K3: Back up email via outlook to a PST.
New Client on New SBS2K8 Network: Configure outlook profile, import PST.

Is this possible or will it not store the imported mail to Exchange?
