There are tools available that can help with this, but to simply move a pst to a network share without configuring Outlook within the application won't work. If you are using an Exchange server, I believe there are settings for managing the downloading of e-mail and where user's mail is stored. This can be crossed with active directory so that the user's pst resides on their home directory for example. But I doubt it will move a pst there so you would need to look into using some kind of Exchange/Outlook migration tool.
Sorry I should have mentioned that we are not going to reuse the PST file so i am not going to need to tell outlook where the file moved to. Just need to copy the individual pst's to a network share where our network group can do what they need to them.
You may also want to include scanning for pst's in your ldappl3.template. It will tell you if a pst exists, but not where it is located.
From the file:
; ScanExtensions lists the extensions that will be searched for.
; Regardless of what is entered in the Applications section, if the extension
; of the file is not listed here, the application will not be found.
; This list is currently limited to 40 extensions. If there are more than 40
; extensions, only the first 40 will be used.
;ScanExtensions=.exe .com .sys .nlm .lan .dll .hlp .lvl .crh .lib .run .jar .dat
I was able to scan for them under multimedia files. gave me a list of who had them and sizes. I am going to get with my exchnage guys and see if that exmerge will work.....it sounds like it ciould be a viable option.
