I am working on a script to move user's Outlook (we run 2003, 2007, and 2010) archive's to a central location on our servers. What I'm looking for is a way to move the archive to the server, then change the Outlook settings so that it auto-archive's to that remote location.

Preferably this would be done with no interaction from the user, and without installing third-party applications. Does such a solution exist?

Note: I'm looking to automate this using either a batch script or a Visual Basic program.

  • Are you using Exchange server?

    Having PST files on a network location is a really bad idea.
