Default Moving IMAP email to an Exchange .PST file?

I am trying to get all my IMAP email into a pst file for each of my users.

What is the best way to get all IMAP mail to a pst file?

Thanks.

Make a new .pst file, add it to outlook along with your imap mail and then manually move it over.

What if my boss turned off the IMAP server?

He says i am supposed to be able to find all the IMAP mail locally on a users machine... then move all that mail to a PST file.

How do I find local IMAP mail without the IMAP server being on?

Probably at the root of the local disk or by Outlooks defaults which would be here C:\Documents and Settings\Warez Monster\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.ost for the offline folders.
