Ahh, didn't realize that, well the user I want to setup first has about 750mb 
stored on the Exchanger server currently.

When the user came to the westcoast office in January, I imported all the 
older mail on his laptop onto the exchange server, so the only thing he will 
potentially lose are any folders and mail he's moved around since that time.

However I am not all that keen on him caching 750mb over the vpn link...

I guess I could always exmerge his mailbox to an ost file, put it on dvd and 
courier it over to him, would I then just have him replace the ost file on 
his computer with the one on the dvd?  Would that work?
