  • Backup thru Exmerge

    Is there an way around by which I can use ex-merge to backup a mailbox larger than 2GB. I read that if a mailbox is larger than 2GB then ex-merge divides it into multiple PST files. but in my case it is not. It simply throws an error and stops.

    else let me know if there is any other utility by which I can backup a single users mailbox of 15GB

    if you have access to the mailbox, you could open it in Outlook and export to PST

      The mailbox belongs to the owner of the company and he is mostly on the move to various destinations around the world. Therefore I have to eliminate the possibility of import/export thru outlook.

        So, with his permission, grant yourself full control of his mailbox and export using Outlook

          Hi Tom,

          I have been searching these forums throughout the whole day but could not find the link to use ex-merge for mailboxes larger than 2gb. I would really be thankful to you if you can you please provide me with the link ?
