Need to Export Exchange 2010 Mailbox to PST with Dumpster

Hello. We have recently begun a migration to Exchange 2010 from 2003. When we term an employee, we have a policy in place that requires us to export that user's mailbox, including dumpster items, to a .pst file for archiving. We have been using Exmerge to do this for the 2003 mailboxes. However, I know have a list of terms to process for people on the 2010 server and it doesn't appear that I can  get the mailbox AND the dumpster items with the Export-Mailbox command. It looks like Exchaneg 2010 SP1 has a new CMDLET that makes this possible, but we will not be installing SP! while still in beta. Does anyone know of a process I can use in the meantime to acoomplish this? I'm hoping to know have to jump through too many hoops to make this happen, but will if I need to. Thanks in advance.  -bill

Exchange 2010 (RTM) still uses the Export-Mailbox command from Exchange 2007 according to this article...
http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2010/management-administration/look-import-export-mailbox-improvements-exchange-2010-service-pack-1-part1.html

And I know for a fact that Export-Mailbox command in Exchange 2007 exports everything including the dumpster because I use it almost daily.

It seems like in Ex2010 SP1 you get some additional commands where you can choose exclude the dumpster during export.

But for the EX2010 RTM version you should be good with the Export-mailbox command (you should get everything including the dupmster).

Export-mailbox "username or email address" -PSTfolderPath "C:\some folder path\"

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately it either changed in 2010 or I am doing something wrong. I just emptied my deleted items folder and exported my mailbox to test again to make sure I didn't miss anything the first time. I am looking at the PST file now and the items I emptied from it are not there and the "Recover Deleted Items" option is greyed out. (using Outlook 2010).

Closing request as SP1 has now been released and we have also found a third party utility that promises be able to do what we need with a simplified GUI. (although not working as well as we'd like)
