Exchange 2010 Export-Mailbox command

I have Exchange 2010 SP1 single server with the typical roles installed.  I assigned a group to the Mailbox Import Export role, and added a user to that role and also added that user as a local admin on the Exchange server.  However, I still do not get the cmdlet for export-mailbox to show up.  I do not have Outlook installed on the server, as I understand this is not necessary with SP1 applied.  Also, the server has all three roles running on one machine, which I've read can be an issue.  I was hoping to not have to setup a seperate install of Exchange with just the mailbox role to get though this.

SP1 uses different commands - try:

new-mailboxexportrequest

and get-mailboxexportrequest for current progress...

Yes, I do get that command available.  I don't see where I can use keywords though with this command to only export say messages with certain words in the subject or body.  I see that option with the old export-mailbox command.  Or am I missing something?

I wonder who thought it would be a good idea to change the name of a cmdlet during a service pack??  Geez.

Thanks man.  This is extra confusing because I've been studying for the Exchange cert tests, and everything there references "Export-Mailbox" instead.  So now I wonder if the exams will update for SP1 or if it will just remain the same?  Bummer.
