Export Exchange 2003 Public Folders …

As part of the recent decommissioning of an SBS 2003 server, i needed to export about 14000 messages from a single public folder on the SBS Exchange Server. Unfortunately, Exmerge won’t do public folders. Therefore, in my search for something else, i found most suggested using third party EDB to PST tools. In the end, i just installed Outlook on the server, created a PST file and moved the messages from the public folder into the PST. I haven’t yet moved them back into a public folder on our Exchange 2003 or 2010 servers. Thinking about setting up a Sharepoint Foundation library for them. Only concern is the SQL Server Express database limit of 8GB. Anyhow, here are some of the links i found somewhat useful:
