Export large exchange mailboxes to pst file

Does anyone know of a good tool to export a large exchange mailbox to a pst file? This is for a law firm in which a few of the lawyers have very large mailboxes, up to 14gb in size. We are moving them over to a new exchange 2007 server and want to have all mailboxes exported to pst files.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Use outlook or a 3rd-party utility for Exchange 2003. The native exchange "server-side" tool has a 2GB limit, so that is not an option in your case. Since you posted in the SBS zone, I'm guessing you only have a few users: Outlook should work great. If you need to automate the process then you'll need to go 3rd-party.

cqaliher, are you referring to the migwiz tool or exmerge?

Cliff GaliherCommented:
migwiz is strictly a migration tool and not an export tool. I was referring to exmerge: 2 gig limit. Hence the need to use Outlook or a 3rd-party.

migwiz appears to allow for export to pst file. Would this not accomplish what I am after? Does it have a size limit?

Cliff GaliherCommented:
While I've never used the migration wizard for this, my understanding is that migwiz still uses the same MAPI engine that exmerge uses in the background, hence it sill has the same ANSI/2gig limit. Essentially all migwiz is doing is wrapping up exmerge as part of a larger migration plan and offers no change/benefit for export purposes.

Yes I was wondering if it was still an ansi format. While I can't really seem to find a decent 3rd party utility to export the mailboxes so it looks like we will be doing it manually from the outlook client. Not ideal but we have only about 25 mailboxes total, four of which are on the large size.
