This only works on SP1.

So this utility can only be ran on a 32-bit machine with Outlook 2003 or later installed. Is there no way to run this on the Exchange 2007 (SP2) server itself?

1) Download “ExMerge” on to a Windows 2003 server with Exchange running on it.
2) Copy “exchmem.dll” to the folder with the “ExMerge” contents.
3) Give full perms to administrator or the user you logged in as to the server and mailboxes.
a. In Exchange Manager, right click in server, properties and then security
b. Uncheck inherit
c. Add everyone, and give full control to everyone.
d. Take ownership
This ensures that you have the require “send as” and “receive as”, but the step here are very insecure. While this is insecure, it does effectively allow a mailbox backup or each user for a system that is about to be decommissioned.
