Definitely problem with your permissions. I assume that you are using ExMerge to export the mailbox data to a PST. Make sure that you have "Send As" and "Recieve As" Permissions on the mailbox. Better still give yourself full permissions on the Mailbox Database and export the mailboxes. Also Check If permissions are Getting Inherited.

how do i give myself full permissions on the store??
Open Exchange System Manager, Go to Your Mailbox Database, Right Click  on it. Go to Security, Choose your account or Exchange Administrator Account which will be used to export mailboxes and give the relevant permissions.

Or go to user's Properties in Active Directory and the go to Security. Modify the permissions from there.
