Exmerge allows you to select mailboxes and extract the content to a PST
file, this can then be imported elsewhere, it also has the ability to
delete messages from mailboxes as well.

Check out www.msexchange.org and look at my section under authors and
you will see an article about using Exmerge to delete messages.

Would it be feasible to setup a new folder and use Windows security to
allow 
Full Access to the Administrator only (or whatever username has rights
to 
run the backup) and no rights to any other users.  I think this might be
an 
easy way to establish basic protection for the .pst files.  Just a 
suggestion.....

Susan
