Bulk Unarchive a Mailbox

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Anyone know how I can do a complete unarchive of an individual mailbox. My company is considering a complete company wide unarchive to support moving our Exhange email to offsite management. The vendors have no solution on how to handle the archived mail.

Thank you

You can use the Export Archive Wizard.  Choose Archives to their original mailboxes and work through the wizard.

how many archives and how much data are you talking about here? while it's true that there's a built in process to export archives, it's very slow, manual, cumbersome, and does not address all requirements of a migration. unless you only have a small number of archives to deal with, i would recommend to evaluate the migration solutions that we have to offer.
