We are currently planning the move to Exchange 2007 from a generic pop3 email server. I've read a few books on exchange, and it seems like most of technet to get ready for this. A question I keep running into.
What do I do with the old pst files? Do I import them into exchange? What about the large ones with years of data? Leave them as an archive locally for the user? Can I import only the last year of data? I believe I could with exporting, but is there an automated way to do it without touching every computer? And, what about space issues right up front? I'm going to limit mailbox sizes, but what if the user is over the limit just with the initial pst import?
Seems like a lot of questions all in one, but boils down to what do I do with the old pst files and what has worked for you?
Note: The pst files are all in Outlook 2003.
