How can I switch an exchange server to another language?

I have an English version Exchange server 2003 who's Locale setting is set to Spanish (Mexico). When I export mailboxes using exmerge the folder names in the PST are in Spanish. I am assuming its because of the Locale setting.

If I change the Locale setting to English (United States) and reboot the server, will I be able to export PSTs in English?

Thank You

If you do not run an English version of Exchange Server 2003 you now have to change some settings in your ExMerge.INI file to make the utility work with national versions. Supported national versions are: English, German, Italian and French.

If you want to use it on one of these language versions, you have to open your exmerge.ini file, search for the language itself and in the line under the language name you should delete the semicolon before the specific language setting. In general you should find about three settings that need to be changed. After this you should have no trouble at all running ExMerge on your specific language version.

Below is my exmerge.ini file. I do not have a Language setting. Is it the DefaultLocaleID that I need to change? Thank you again.

The exmerge program itselft has a window where you can choose locale, I chose Spanish but the PST was still in English. See attached screenshot.
