Copy Exchange 2010 SP1 mailbox to Outlook 2007

Situation:  User's workstation  was in a workgroup from T0 to T1, then a client on my domain (Server 2008 R1, Exchange 2010 SP1) from T1 to T2, then back in a workgroup from T2 to present. User has in Outlook messages during the T0 to T1 period and T2 to present.  

Problem/Need:  Get messages on the server for the period T1 to T2 into the local Outlook.

Tried so far:
1.  Joined the workstation to the domain again and archived the messages on the server to a PST file.  Removed from the domain, and imported messages from the archive pst file.  Outlook goes through the motions and appears to be performing the task, but the messages are not in the inbox, which still has nothing in the T1 to T2 time period.

2. Joined the domain again and changed to Cached Exchange Mode.  Outlook downloads the messages, but into an OST file (that is, not PST file).  Removed from the domain and attempted to import the OST file, but Outlook refuses saying it it not an Outlook data file.

Possible contributing / complicating factor.
1. When joined to the domain, user logged on as janj.  The ost file created by changing to Cached Exchange Mode is created in the profile user profile for janj.

2. When not joined to the domain, user logs on as jan.

3. The Personal Folder properties when logged on as jan indicates that the PST file is in users\owner\etc, not in users\jan.


Any suggestions out there?  (This morning I'm going to explore what is available by way of exporting a file working at the server, but thought I'd post this question before I head in.)

Hello

Well an Outlook client cant connect to an exchange server even if the PC and Exchange server are in different domains. The only difference if botha are in the same domain is that the user is autenticated by windows.
So you need to be sure that the DNS used by PC can resolve the Exchange domain, the user account for mailbox is valid, the PC can access the Exchange server (no firewall).
then you can configure an exchange account on Outlook (logged as workgroup user), the Exchange server will ask you for domain identification (don't forget to put userid like domain\user)
The the user has t0-t1 mails on pst, t1-t2 on Exchange server (but you can copy all emails on a pst file) and t2-t3 in an other pst.
That was complex/complete solution.
Now the easy one:
You log on on one domain workstation as mailbox account user. You reconfigure outlook to see all t1-t2 mails. You create a pst file (New - data file) then you drag and drop all emails from mailbox to datafile. Do not try to drag and drop folders like Inbox or Sent Items, only the content of that folders (meaning you sholud create two folders on your personal folder).
Close Outlook. Copy the pst file on workgroup computer and open it on outlook. Done.
