Outlook 2003 Mailbox

I have just set up user on our Exchange 2003 server. The user had been using Outlook 2002 and I upgraded him to Outlook 2003. How do I get the existing mail from Outlook 2002 in to the Exchange mailbox. The user has been on POP3 and using Outlook.

Dear All
Well if the user has been using the Outlook or Outlook Express as POP3 email, then the user has their pst file(s) on their machine.
If they are to berestricted to Exchange emails, then from Control Panel Select mail (while Outlook is closed) and modify the profile Email Account to use Exchange. If you are using domain User accounts, then it will automatically be picked. Make sure that the original data pst file is selected. Edit email account and modify the Exchange account so that the default data file is the pst file rather than the exchange Mailbox.
When the user restarts Outlook, two folders are noticed, that of the exchange Mailbox and the pst folder. At Send/Recive, the email will be synchrinised.
The above is the optimum, as the users connecting remotely will see only the new emails that are still in the exchange mailbox

    I would export mail from the client to a PST file. You'd then have to import that PST to the server side using a directly attached client or via a client with access to the mailbox. Pretty straight-forward export and import of the PST file, the trick will be directly attaching the client to the server or accessing the user's mailbox. If you can attach client to server directly, then copy the mail back up without the PST transfer.
