Exporting exchange 2007 mailboxes to PST

Hi guys,

What is the easiest way to export an ex employee's exchange 2007 mailboxes to .PST? Surely there is an app or export function that could aid us?

Thanks if you can help.
Steve

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Isn't there a simple version command for the shell?

I am pretty sure I havent got it installed but I still need to be sure.

I think we are in business!

ServerRole  Edition     AdminDisplayVe

Mailbox,... Enterprise  Version 8.1...

I think it would've mention SP1 in there if it was installed. Could someone else just run that command and paste in their results?

So it would be fair to suggest I need to install SP1.

Is this an easy task and do I need to back anything up before hand?

version 8.1 is SP1 + verify to be sure some AD-extensions added through SP1 implemtation....
and of course, before executing any command/upgrade etc - golden rule - always keep a recent and preferably tested backup. Sometimes it is really surprising....

Right OK I have tried to execute the Export command as in your first post and I get the following error:

[PS] U:\>Export-Mailbox -Identity nina.***@***.com -TargetMailbox Expo
rtMailbox -TargetFolder c:\pst
The object could not be found.
At line:1 char:1
+ E <<<< xport-Mailbox -Identity nina.***@***.com -TargetMailbox Expo
rtMailbox -TargetFolder c:\pst

Did you follow the guidelines?

To grant full access to a mailbox, use the Add-MailboxPermission cmdlet and specify FullAccess for the AccessRights parameter. For example, if Admin01 needs to export data from John's mailbox to a mailbox called Export, you must first run the following commands:

 Copy Code
Add-MailboxPermission -Identity john -User Admin01 -AccessRights FullAccess
Add-MailboxPermission -Identity Export -User Admin01 -AccessRights FullAccessTo export data from an Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000 mailbox, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Administrator role for the administrative group in which the server resides.

To export data from a .pst file, you must run the Export-Mailbox cmdlet from a 32-bit computer that has the following installed:

The 32-bit version of the Exchange management tools

Outlook 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Outlook 2007

For information about Exchange 2007 management tools 32-bit download, see Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Management Tools (32-Bit).

If you export data to a folder in another mailbox, the target mailbox that you specify must exist before you run the command..
----------------------------------------------
=> do you set permissions?
=> exchange management tools installed + on 32bit OS?
=> is Outlook 2003SP2/2007 installed (MAPI)? and create in advance the pst file to export to?

Export-Mailbox -Identity john@contoso.com -PSTFolderPath C:\PSTFiles\john.pst
