How to move Outlook client folders to file server with same directory structure


There must be a way to do this through powershell but I'm not sure. We've inherited a client that has their entire client list in separate folders and subfolders all in a shared mailbox.  It goes A - Z with about 50 GB of messages.

These are all old emails and I've finally convinced them to move all that data to a file server.

Outlook can only drag and drop emails not folders.

What's the best strategy here? To move these in bulk?

Rather than moving all the msg files, why not put the whole thing into one (or multiple) PST files, and put those on the file share.

If they are old and being archived, presumably they won't be accessed very often, so it should not be an issue?
