Export Mailbox to PST over 20GB

Last Modified: 2012-05-08
I am in the process of exporting mail to PST files for the purpose of being ingested by our hosted e-mail archive provider.

I am using Exchange 2007 SP1 Management tools and using the Export-Mailbox powershell command.  However, once the mailbox hits 20 GB the export fails.  I had read somewhere that there was a theoretical size of up to 33TB (not that I'd ever get that far) but we do have a few mailboxes within our organization that range between 20GB - 70GB size.

Is there a specific command i need to issues to overried the "recommended" 20GB setting?
