Any way to copy PST structure, not content?



We have users that fill up PSTs like crazy. Then, of course, they need
to create new ones when they reach the upper size limits of the PST
(yes, we're still on O2K, and no plans to change very soon)/

SOMEone must've come up with a util to simply copy a PSTs folder name
structure, without the items within folders, so that a user doesn't
have to manually re-create each folder and myriad subfolders.

Did someone? Anyone know of something? I'll vbs it if I have to, but
it'll take awhile.

from the existing pst or copy the pst and delete the contents - use it (or
copies of it) as the basis for the new pst. This method preserves custom
