I have a PST created with exmerge from a Spanish language Exchange server. I need to import it into an English version of Exchange. How can I convert it to English so that I don't get Calendario for Calendar and Contactos for Contacts?

thanks

That might work for one PST, but I am going to have over 100. I think if I change the Locale settings on the Exchange 2003 server from Spanish to English, the exports will be in English. I'm going to test that tonight.

thank you

well, changing the Locale setting on my exchange 2003 server from English to Spanish did not work. PST exports were still in English. I was sure this would cause mailboxes to export in export in Spanish.
