if you are using an email client like Outlook on each user computer , you can open outlook and archive the emails as PST. (you will have to do this for each one)
you can find a non free software converter through the net , but they don't guarantee the results because it depends on the OST file status.

Two method
1a). Follow given some instruction: IN Outlook 2007

Tools -> Account Settings -> Email account -> More settings -> Advanced tab -> select Use Cached Exchange Mode --> Click Offline Folder File Settings -> Browse to .OST file then restart Outlook. open your OST file
After restart outlook,
File -> Import and Export -> Export to a file -> .pst file

b). Create a new outlook .pst file and drag the folder to .pst file that you want to move

Edit by mod. Link deleted.

Tool moves .ost contacts, notes, journals to .pst format.

Edit by mod, link is suspicious, not freeware.

Smart screen filter said it was okay. Software is expensive though. Old thread too.

@ warlock,

Its probably ok but can't get WOT on my phone unfortunately they refuse to make an app for it :(

So have to go with the above site checker.

Edit : have to do it the long way but still looks dodgy to me : http://www.mywot.com/en/scorec.....oolbox.com

@GS, I didn't take your report off. Had to be a mod.

web of trust scam. Try googling this yourself. Hope it works doesn't mean I agree with it. Bedtime here GS. I'll see your answer tomorrow.

@ Joe,

I agree with what these people are saying to a degree, however, without such 'options' you would open yourself up to all kinds of nasties.

Remember these are based on User Ratings and not comments as some have argued. For a site to be classed as bad across the net in WOT there has to be a xxxx? Number of bad user ratings the comments are merely optional and have little to do with the rating system.

I do agree that it is an extortionate amount of money to get your site 'unlocked', but the amount of sites out there that try deliberately to Spy, Hack, d/l Virus to a users computer is phenomenal and WOT is just one tool to protect a the average user.

Some of the people that complained that they're site was flagged never provided a link to their site to test and either way there are free and simple methods to counteract such ratings, sometimes you just wonder about certain users abilities to understand the real meaning behind protective 'implementations' (am referring entirely to complaints made against WOT on scam lists).

I could post a link to a site that when it started to get implemented would show a question mark as it was/is virtually unheard of, however I set the rating to RED ever since no matter what computer I'm on it will show as RED and not a question mark. (And rightfully so).

@GS, I don't use WOT. I know others here do. I use smart screen filter and my AV will put up a warning if a site is deemed bad or questionable. So, far so good here. Anyway, just put that link up fyi. still don't know why it would not work for you though.
