When you have migrated a user's messages to a PST file, the user may not be able to open the migrated PST file with his or her Exchange account.
The Migration Wizard assigns a random password for the PST file. This password is not the same as the individual user's logon password.
The PST password is located in the Pst.password file. This file is located in the directory where the PST file was created. The Event Viewer will record the following:
Event Id: 10075 Source: MSExchangeMig Type: Information Category: None Description: Passwords for new PST files are listed in the file: :\\PST.PASSWORD.
This is by product design.
