Bit of a tricky one, need some advanced help please!

#1
I have a machine that connects to a VPN server 50 miles away that I have no physical access to, I use it for Outlook 2000, this collects mail and sends fine, now this server is due to go offline as the company is going bust so I just need to download all the messages to my hard disk, how can this be done, as far as I can see the messages never download on to my hard disk??

It is a Microsoft Exchange server set up.

I have had a look but can't work it out, there is about 50 folders totalling 1.5gig!

I am fairly computer literate so complicated instructions can be followed.

If you can help, thanks in advance guys :)

is outlook 2000 on the server you accessing or are you using it on your machine? which you are VPN'ing from. you could allways save all files to a .pst file. tools/ services and set it up from there after that just save that .pst file and you can merge it into any other outlook or you can load it like a archive.

Thanks for the quick reply

I'm not at the machine atm, I will get to it in the morning.

Outlook is on my local machine, so you say tools/services will be the option to use, you mentioned setting it up is it pretty self explanatory?

yah look at it and what you want to do is set up a pst file using tool/ services make a location for new mail to be delivered and then set it to be delivered there ina nother tab that will download the mail into a pst on your computer. this way you will have the old mail. After that you can load it into outlook as a archive if you want. Any questions at all feel free to ask.

ive done this quite a few times and is the easiest way. over a VPN and a large profile, may take a long time to do. ive had a profile over a gig in email that took 2 hours to populate all the info locally. mind you it was on a 10mb network :lick:
