I have about 30 PST files which I need to import into mailboxes in Exchange 2010.

They are all named by the first part of the email address. For example with, that PST would be johnsmith.pst. would be administrator.pst etc.

How can I use PowerShell to import these PST files into the relevant mailboxes? They have already been created on the server.
