  • Exporting mailboxes >2GB to PST exchange 2003

    Hi I Have a number of mailboxes to export to PST files to allow importing into our parent company's exchange 2007 box.

    I have a proportion of these mailboxes which are over 2Gb which makes exmerge a pain in the butt to use.

    Are there any apps anyone can recommend which will allow me to export to the newer pst format to make my job a little easier?

    Many Thanks

    Mike

    Use Outlook to export the mailboxes.

      Problem is that requires asking my users to do something which is a no-no cos I will have to check what they have done

        Run EXMERGE multiple times, using filters. So Year would be a common one. Then there will have to be multiple passes on the import side. That is about your only
        option if you don't want to use Outlook.

        The only third party tools would be very expensive. I expect some of the tools from Quest will do it, but they aren't really interested in talking to you unless you have more than 500 users (And very deep pockets).

          Yeah speaking to Quest at the moment, we only have 50 users roughly on this domain, maybe the depth of our pockets make up for the lack of users

            I would be surprised if Quest even want to talk to you. At 50 users the costs simply don't make it worth the outlay. Just make multiple exmerge runs and then import multiple times.
