Exchange 2003 export 2GB mailbox to pst

I need to export about 20 mailboxes from my exchange server. Some are larger than 2GB and I hear that exmerge only works up to 2GB ( should keep it under 1.8gb)

I have heard of using Outlook to export to .pst bigger than 2GB..

But how about if I need to restore the .pst file back into the Mail Store in Exchange?

outlook 2007 and higher can export >2GB and also import of you need to bring it back. Exmerge does indeed have a limit, both in exporting and importing. If you don't have or don't want to use a newer version of Outlook, you will have to purchase a 3rd party tool. I've never found a reliable free or open source tool.

Just do multiple passes with exmerge. It can filter on date, so I usually do it by year or something like that.
You can then either import the file through Exchange, or rename it to match the alias on the account and import it with exmerge again.

You can use Outlook from your workstation. I do not recommend installing Outlook on servers.
