Hello Guys,

I am totally new with PowerShell and I will need to understand which commands I can use to import and export to a CSV file into Exchange 2007 environment.
I used to do the same with Exchange 2003 only by clicking with the right-button on the Public Folders and then "Export List". Does any one have an idea how I would be able to proceed? Maybe if you guys could give me just an idea I will be able to do it.
Thanks, LaranjaCarioca

btw... if you want all you need to add the -recurse

Get-PublicFolder -Recurse | Export-Csv <CSV File> -noType

-recurse means to process the entire tree (almost like a directory tree.)

If you do not use -recurse then it will only get one level of public folders

BSonPosh,

Really thanks for your help...do you think the following command would work?

Get-PublicFolder -Database server\storage group\public folder database -recurse | Export-Csv c:\PFcsvFile.csv

If your wanting a specific Public folder you need to use the -id parameter.

How many public folders do you have?

I would step through the command (it doesnt change anything.)

PS> Get-PublicFolders
What did you get?

PS> Get-PublicFolders -recurse
Did you get more folders? Did you get the ones you wanted? To many?

Use "Get-Help Get-PublicFolders -full" for detailed help

Hello BSonPosh,

As a matter of fact it is just an example. Soon I will need to work with this and I just wanted to make sure how to get the public folders on a specific public folder and then save it into a CSV file.
Probably it will be lots of folders and subfolders.
I read the -full help for this command and I think it would work. As soon I get back something from the production mode, I will let you know...THANKS!
