I want to move all mailbox contents (mail, calendar, contacts..)from a pst file to exchange server. What is the easiest way to do this. I hate to have to drag each folders... i am converting from google apps to exchange 2007.

If you have Exchange 2007 SP1 installed, you can use:

Import-Mailbox -Identity <mailboxUser> -PSTFolderPath <PSTFileLocation>

Note that the above is a PowerShell command and here is the Microsoft guide for it:

If you don't have SP1 installed and aren't keen to update, there are ways to make Ex-Merge work with Exchange 2007, such as this one:

Or if you prefer using a workstation. Configure Outlook to open the Exchange mailbox. Make sure to close the .pst if it's in the folder list. Now use the File->Import and Export. Choose from another program. Select Personal Folders (.pst). Point it to the .pst file. Make sure you select the top folder folder to import into.

I don't believe so, but there are any number of tools available to convert .ost files to .pst files.

Remember .ost files are cached mailbox copies. Therefore if you've done proper Exchange backups you shouldn't fall to needing to import .ost files.

If you are looking to automate a large enterprise migration of PST files form workstations onto respective mailboxes, DataMills I think should have this solution that can scale to many thousands..http://www.datamills.com
