We are importing PST files into exchange using the "New-MailboxImportRequest -FilePath \\server\PST\example.pst -Mailbox Example" command.  It went well for a few users however failed in the middle for a few others.  We will be running SCANpst on those to correct errors before re-importing, however I want to be sure when we import again that duplicates are not created.  Will it overwrite duplicates or do I need a command switch to ensure that?

Ive never tried it but you might want to take a look at the ConflictResolutionOption switch. From its description it sounds like it may do what you want.

There is a limit of 2GB set standard in SBS for all users mailboxes.
On the users that fail the import just remove that limitation in the SBS console>Users> Properties.
Or in EMC change the allowedd mailbox size per user or system wide.
Hope that helps,
Olaf
