Finally, a simple way to export mailbox information other then the horrible Exmerge! Unfortunately though you do need a completely separate Server 2008 with Outlook and Exchange tools installed. But I would rather throw up a quick VM and installing all that then dealing with Exmerge and its ridicules inherit permission issues. FYI, These commands all need to be run in the Exchange Management Shell.
- To export the mailbox data to a .PST:
Export-Mailbox -Identity <Mailbox_ID_ex._JDoe> -PSTFolderPath <Full_path_of_PST_folder><File_name>.pst
- Specific date range:
Export-Mailbox -Identity <Mailbox_ID> -StartDate “<Month/Date/Year>” -EndDate “<Month/Date/Year>” -PSTFolderPath <Full_Path_of_PST_Folder><File_name>.pst
- Sent mail only:
Export-Mailbox -Identity <Mailbox_ID> -IncludeFolders ‘Sent Items’ -TargetFolder <Path_of_folder_to_dump> -TargetMailbox <Mailbox_ID>
