OST to PST

Hello all,
I have a new client that is using a cloud Exchange server and are being charged an outrageous amount per month for 25 email addresses.  We are going to move their domain to someone like Godaddy and have POP3 accounts.
My question is since I do not have admin rights to the Exchange server, what program will truly allow me to copy the OST file that they have on their PCs over to a PST file so we can do POP accounts?
Thanks,
Kelly W.

The only way to do this would be to access the mapi profile as the user. You cannot convert an ost to a pst without that access. There are tools out there which you can google, but it would simply be easier to have everyone create their own pst file and put the mail they want to keep in it. You can send them instructions on how to create the folder and give them a deadline. Then collect those files and move them to your pop server.

Use Google Apps, and use the Google Apps Migration Tool to connect to the Exchange server and migrate mailboxes.

After migration, you will have the ability ro set up POP3, or IMAP, or whatever you need.

Okay I will be doing the work on all of this.
No we will not be doing Google Apps on this.
So you are saying to create a pst file and copy everything they want into the pst file?
Thanks,
