Extra steps are for enterprise environment
Hi Mike - Thanks for the input. Of course the export to PST is not technically necessary if you restore directly from the RDB to the user's mailbox. However these steps were prepared for a large enterprise environment where a mailbox recovery scenario that was supported by all use cases was needed. These use cases frequently include forensic and ex-employee scenarios where recovery of old mailboxes to current mailboxes is not desired. So the extra steps provide a repeatable process that satisfies all stakeholders.
