Sync an imported .pst file from Outlook to Exchange 2007

Hi All,
Previously we have used a technique whereby we have exported a users email to .pst. Then we have deleted and recreated the users mailbox on the server and the users outlook profile. Finally we had imported the .pst file into Outlook and it has synched back to the newly created mailbox on the Exchange Server. This was with Exchange 2003 and Outlook 2003.
My Question is can we do this with Exchange 2007. My plan is to use this technique to connect a customer to the exchange 2007 server they already have installed, and sync up the email they have in .pst format for each user, from a hosted POP server they wish to move away from.
I have seen no reference to this, just reference to the difficulty in extracting .pst files from an Exchange 2007 mailbox. I am hoping somebody has tried this for themselves, or has a lab where they can test it.
Note to self. Build 64 bit lab.
Best regards,
Schumi

Not sure where you have seen it is difficult to do, there's a guide here: http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2007/04/13/437745.aspx

Or you can still do it with outlook the same way you are now

Yes it should work just fine. Just import the pst into the mail box of the user.

You can actually import pst's into Exchange 2007.
There's a pretty easy guide to follow if you wish:
