I have a situation where I need to export about 50 users' Calendars, Contacts and Tasks and instead of logging into every mailbox and exporting 3 different .pst files to a network location I am looking to do this through a script that would pull all 50 users listed in an excel spreadsheet and export all 3 folders to .pst files.  I will also need to know how to list the columns in the spreadsheet to coincide with the script.

Thanks for your help,

I was going to mention using ExMerge. But it's only supported up to 2003. Oh well.

is there a reason you have not gone to SP! yet?  

1. Before you can do anything with Import/Export of data I highly recommend that you install SP1  and SP1 RU2  ( Avoid SP1 RU3 for the moment since there is an issue they are working out)

2. Here is a great article on how to do what you want and more. http://www.stevieg.org/2010/07/using-the-exchange-2010-sp1-mailbox-export-features-for-mass-exports-to-pst/  I would suggest you read the entire article, however,  search for CSV in the article to find exactly what you are looking for.
