When did you realise that you should import PST to  Exchange Server?

I read one article in which it was written that PST have their place but they can be problematic for firm that uses it.

After reading this, I also reacted in a same way as you are- shocked!

Then, I tried to understand the concept as in many cases PST files are used as a mechanism for avoiding mailbox quotas. If any user wanted to have more messages than quota permits then, they can easily move extra messages to Outlook PST file, where they are not in administrator’s control.

The biggest issue with Outlook PST files is that they are located on user’s local hard drives, and therefore, never backed up. Indeed, even PST files can be placed on the network share, doing it violates the Microsoft’s practices and, more importantly, rises chances of data corruption.

Another noticeable issue with permitting PST files is that its usage can lead to data theft.

In a situations where the users are saving their messages in their local PST files, anyone who has physical access to the users’ system can easily copy all PST files on removable media. While it is true that security risks can be decreased by simple steps like as encrypting the workstation’s hard drives whereas many organizations do not have such precautions.
