Exmerge doesn't support Unicode PSTs.

So, if you copy the PST and try an exmerge and it doesn't work, you need
to export from Outlook to an ANSI PST.;en-us;823176

Alternatively, import it using Outlook.... but that will involve more
time sitting at the user's desktop - I have exmerged after converting
PSTs from UniCode to ANSI no problemos.
