Its probably a permissions problem you need to add the user that you are running the import command under to all Exchange Admin Groups

Exchange 2007 Import PST (powershell) - Windows
Can I please take this opportunity to thank you all for supporting me in getting my Exchange 2007 working. I have just this one more small issue I have got this external dns mail.xxxx.org which I use for all our external e-mails. It forwards all external e-mail.
I have set up a connector through the hub transport but the e-mails are getting stuck saying unreacheable.
Howdy folks, i'm having a bit of a problem trying to import a PST file into our new Exchange 2007 server.
The users we are moving to exchange have been using a basic email hosting service provided by Fasthosts (arrgh i know), they have been downloading there emails to outlook 2003 clients, i exported there existing personnel folder to a PST file and i used the management shell to import it.
everything seems to go fine but when i check the users new exchange inbox nothing is there.
here is the log after i run the import
I also checked the size of the mailbox database and it doesn't seem to have taken any data as its still at 8KB. the file i was trying to imprt was 120mb and i tried to import the inbox only which is just over 4mb.
Are you sure you want to perform this action?
Importing mailbox content from .pst file 'c:\inbox.pst' to mailbox 'Roddy
Fergusson'. This operation may take a long time to complete.
