How to export content of former user exchange mailbox to new user's?

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Nicolas Verhaeghe, Jul 19, 2005.

  1. When a user leaves and a new user takes over, how do I export the content of
    the Mailbox of User A to the Mailbox of Use B? I need to export all the
    emails, contacts, calendar, tasks, etc...

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Hi Nicolas,
    If it is only an occasional thing, you can log on as the old user, Open
    Outlook, export everything to a .PST file, Log on as the new user and import
    the PST file.

    See;
    How to back up, to restore, or to move Outlook 2002 data in Outlook 2002
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;287070

    There is a section on;
    How to Export Personal Folders (.pst) File Data
    and
    How to Import Personal Folders (.pst) File Data

    If there are lots to do, use Exmerge on the Exchange server.

  3. Hello Nicolas,

    Thank you for posting in the SBS newsgroup.

    Also, many thanks for Jeff's great input.

    According to your description, I understand that you would like to export
    the content of former user's exchange mailbox to new user's mailbox. If I
    have misunderstood your concern, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Jeff is right on target, please try to export the items of the old user
    exchange mailbox to the pst file, and then import the pst file to the new
    user's mailbox. In additional, I'm glad to provide the more information for
    your reference:
