200 Old Rackspace Mailboxes - Download and Delete from Rackspace's Exchange 2013 Server

I'd like to download hundreds of mailboxes so I can delete them on Rackspace's Exchange 2013 server.

I've tried this tool and it's unreliable and unusable:

I've tried Mailstore and it's reliable, but doesn't include calendar and contacts so therefore unusable.

Please note this Rackspace Exchange 2013 server isn't mine and I don't have command line or admin access. As far as I've seen, I can only get to the old mailboxes by having credentials to each. I'm contacting RS to confirm this.

Is there a tool you know of to download complete Exchange 2013 mailboxes and store them on on-prem storage for possible future use?

I use regularly Bittitan to migrate from Hosted Exchange, but generally to another mailing system.

I wonder if using a local Exchange or even Office 365 could not be a good choice?It will be easy to export mailboxes to PST at this time.

Bittitan allows to enter a specific password for each mailbox/user to migrate.
I suppose that it is also possible to give full permission on the source, event mailbox by mailbox

https://github.com/imapsync/imapsync provides 1x way to do this.

A rock solid tool which handles most cases.

Tip: Setup a Dovecot instance as your target IMAP server, which will be cheaper ($0 license) + likely easier to manage, then Exchange.

Also... Dovecot runs a standard backing store... where each message is just a simple file... which keeps backups + maintenance tasks trivial.
