i have a person here at work who has meny archives for her email. 1 per folder. i have been given the wonderful task of changing her email archive options so that everything gets archived to a single file.
that being said i dont really want to manualy inport all of the allready archived emails, just to change the auto archive settings and run again…
so what im looking for is a little program or script that will consolidate *.pst mail archives into 1 *.pst archive (if you get what i mean)
that way i will only have to change a few settings in outlook and i wont be at it all morning
What I have done in the past, is to just create a new archieve pst in the folder that you want it. Now just go to the old archieve, select all the messages and drop them in the new archieve. Now disconnect the old archieve folder and continue with the next one. Once all the messages have been moved over, close Outlook and then go into the Control Panel (Windows) and open the Mail icon. Select the Data Files and from there, remove all of the old .pst files you don’t want anymore. Now when they open Outlook, all those archieve folders will no longer be there for them to see and use, and you can then go in and remove them from the server or local pc’s hard drive.
