Trying to export mailbox contents to PST.

When I run the following it works fine:

Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "exOU" | Export-Mailbox  -SenderKeywords sender@email.com  –Enddate 08/09/2010 -PSTFolderPath C:\PST

Open in new window


When I expand the search using this:

Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "exOU" | Export-Mailbox -ContentKeywords "KEYWORD1", "KEYWORD2", "KEYWORD3", "KEYWORD4" -SenderKeywords "KEYWORDEMAIL" -RecipientKeywords "KEYWORDEMAIL" -AllowMerge -PSTFolderPath c:\PST

Open in new window


I get the following error message:

Export-Mailbox : Parameter set cannot be resolved using the specified named par
ameters.
At line:1 char:89
+ Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "exOU" | Exp
ort-Mailbox <<<<  -ContentKeywords "Keyword", "keyword", "keyword",
 "keyword" -SenderKeywords "keyword" -Recipient
Keywords "keyword" -AllowMerge -PSTFolderPath c:\PST
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [Export-Mailbox], Parameter
   BindingException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : AmbiguousParameterSet,Microsoft.Exchange.Managem
   ent.RecipientTasks.ExportMailbox

I have tried removing various pieces, all with the same result.  Any suggestions?
