Exchange 2007 sp1 scheduling export mailbox for datewise pst

hi
we have Exchange 2007 sp1 with around 600 mailboxes. But only for a set of 20 mailboxes, the mail flow will be higher per day( around 20,000 mails per day). so i need to archive these 20 mailbox mails to a pst file on daily basis. Automating this process is the real practical solution because its difficult to manually do this export on daily basis.

can anybody help us how to schedule a auto archive process which will export all the mails for that mail boxes in a location with auto named as datewise pst files.

regards
thiru.

1. export-mailbox -identity username -pstfolderpath d:\username/pst (you need full control on this mailbox).

2. Use -StartDate and -EndDate parameters with the above command. Run get-help export-mailbox for full syntax info.

3. You might have to run a script for that. Post a question in scripting zone and someone will help you.

4. It won't delete the emails from the exchange server unless you specify an extra parameter.

Hi Rajith

thanks for your prompt help...
A few clarifications on the solution given...

1. The said script is for exporting all maiboxes. If i need to do this for particular mailbox how to do it?

2. My script should export mails only delivered on yesterday  ( ie., 1 day mails). how to achieve this?

3.. Also how to automate the pst file saving with a datewise file name? (ie., if iam running the script today for yesterday's date, the pst file name should be "yesterday date".pst. Like this for daily.)

4. By running this export script, will the exported mails will be deleted from the server or still a copy will be maintained in the server?(My requirement is it should not be there in the server after exporting to pst.)


regards
Thiru
