export mailbox in Exchange 2007 from 32 bit client

Hi,

I need to export some exchange 2007 Sp1 mailboxes to pst files from a foreign domain.   Since i cant do it from the server via Remote Desktop Connection,  i need to install this on my computer that runs 32 bit Windows Vista.

My question is this..
My laptop is on domain1.com
The exchange 2007 server i need to export the mailbox from  is at domain2.com
I am connected over there via VPN


Is it possible to achieve such manipulation or I absolutely need to export from a pc thats conencted to their local domain?
Regards
LVL 2

you can make that work.

just connect your outlook to the exchange server on the other domain, it will ask you for credentials when querying the other domain, then again when you access the mailbox and export via outlook.

however it might be a better idea to run the export on a pc on the same domain / network as it will run much quicker,

I dont see why not.

but if you are doing a few, why can you not connect to the exchange server to do it?

Because for some unknown reasons,  You cannot export mailboxes to PST file when running locally on a 64 bit machine. Yu can only do  it via remote..

You can install outlook 2007 (or 2010) and run;

Export-Mailbox -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -PSTFolderPath <Path_Of_PST_Folder>\<File_Name>.pst

@Jamie: You cannot run the Export-Mailbox command to export mailbox to a PST from the exchange server itself.
@maxalarie: You can run the same command as long as you have exchange shell installed on the machine that you are using.
Just use the commands below:
$Domain2Credential = get-credential
 This will prompt you to put in user name and password. Put the domain 2 credentials that has FULL MAILBOX access to the mailbox that you want to export.
Then issue the command mentioned below:
 
Export-Mailbox -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -PSTFolderPath <Path_Of_PST_Folder>\<File_Name>.pst -service -domaincontroller <DOMAIN2 DC FQDN> -credential $Domain2Credential

Only the above command will not work. See: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd285510(EXCHG.80).aspx
 
You need to set the credentials first using below:

$Domain2Credential = get-credential

This will prompt you to put in user name and password. Put the domain 2 credentials that has FULL MAILBOX access to the mailbox that you want to export.

Then issue the command mentioned below:

Export-Mailbox -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -PSTFolderPath <Path_Of_PST_Folder>\<File_Name>.pst -service -domaincontroller <DOMAIN2 DC FQDN> -credential $Domain2Credential

If I am logged as the Domain Administrator on my machine should i have all permissions by default?

mukulagCommented:
No. Domain Admin will not work, It has Deny permissions rather. You WILL need to have an account that has Full mailbox access to the target mailbox(es)
