I have many users that are going to be migrating from one Exchange hosted email solution to another. In order to do this and retain their data, we need to download all of the old email for each user, and import the old email into the new mailbox once they are cut over.
I know that there are third-party tools that can be used to do this archiving, but the company does not want to spend more money on third party tools for something that is going to only be used once. They are willing to have each user start with EMPTY mailboxes and to export / import the old mail one mailbox at a time to save money.
I think that this entire process can be sped up if we can just get everyone to click on a script that will AUTOMATICALLY ARCHIVE their existing mailbox to PST on their local machine. Is there any way to script this?
