how to import-mailbox a pst file into a new folder inside a mailbox?

I need to re-import users PST files back into their mailboxes on the mail server but i need to have the mail put intoa newly created folder rather than justh ave it go back into the users mailbox. in many cases users have re-organized their mail in the archive so i want to leave that structure they created in tact and just get the pst into a "mail archive" folder in their mailbox. I've read thru the MS documentation for the import-mail command but can't determine if i can redirect the mail into a folder rather than just bring it all back.
i havent' found any more detailed instructions beside this. I'm using exchange 2007 ent with sp1

Have a look at the Export-Mailbox command. With it you can specify a TargetMailbox and TargetFolder.
Here's a link:

I already have the PST's, i need to import them back into the mailboxes, i don't see a targetfolder on the import-mailbox tool unfortunately.
You could workaround this by creating a new temporary mailbox and then importing the whole lot. Then use the Export-Mailbox from this one specifying the user mailbox as the TargetMailbox and setting a TargetFolder.

Bit of mucking about, but easy.
