PST Files to Exchange Mailboxes on SBS2003

    Hello. We are working with a new client, doing an SBS4.5 to SBS2003
    migration - to new hardware.

    For a bunch of reasons, we are having problems using the Exchange Server
    Migration Wizard in SBS2003 to get the contents of the mailboxes directly
    from the old server to the new server.

    We have been able to successfully get the contents of the mailboxes from the
    old server to individual PST files - one for each user.

    I am looking for something like the feature found in EXMERGE to Exchange
    2000 where I could important the contents of individual PST files into
    like-named Exchange mailboxes.

    I don't seem to be able to find that option in the Exchange Server Migration
    Wizard in SBS2003.

    Is there some way that I could important the contents of individual PST
    files (previously exported from the old server) into like-named Exchange
    mailboxes on the new SBS2003 server? (just like I used to be able to do with
    EXMERGE)

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Hi Lloyd

    I don't know how many clients you have but on a small 5 user network I used
    Outlook itself to import the old pst files into their Exchange folder. One
    word of caution here is that I bumped into the 200 meg limit and had to
    raise it until the imports were done and they did some cleanup. If you have
    40 or 50 clients that might be a bit too time consuming for you but it
    worked fine on a small number.
