    If you're just doing it from one pst file to an exchange box it's pretty easy. Just open the pst file in outlook and move any folders from it to your exchange inbox. Assuming you don't exceed the storage limit of your Exchange box you shouldn't have any problems

    mailbox items
    I have created a new user mailbox on exchange server. when you login to the exchange system manager and go to admin group, servers, servername, first storage, mailbox store, and then mailboxs it has all the users and it shows total items. The new user has 9 items but when you login to the WS and create the exchange account the inbox is empty and all the other folders are empty.

    where and how can i get that mail?

    To get from pst to exchange you will want to import the pst Using Outlook) into exchange. You should already have the default message store set to exchange.

    I import (from another program) select the pst and include subfolders then close the personal folder once your done.

    After you copy the emails back into the new exchange server you can no longer reply to the those old users even if you have created exact user names on the new server. Do you know of a way around this? Is there software that should be used during the creation of the PST from the original server?
