Can you export a mailbox from Exchange 2007 using the Outlook 2007 client?

Hello all,
 I've been reading up on the cmdlet 'Export-mailbox' and I have to install the Exchange tools 32bit on a client computer running a 32bit OS yada yada yada but if I go into the EMC and give myself Full Access to one of the mailboxes I want to export and then go back to my client and open that mailbox in my Outlook. Then I can go to File-->Import/Export...--> and follow the procedure there for that mailbox and export to a pst. It seems doable but is it? If I do run it, the export won't delete the contents of the mailbox right?
Has anyone tried it this way instead of using the powershell script?

Thanks a lot,
BW

I export out of my exchange several times.  I have never had an issue and even if you did wipe out the box on the server, you can always import the data back in.  I had to export when switching from another vendors hosted email to my own internal server.  It saved me a ton of work with the vendor and worked like a charm for all of my users.  We didn't lose a thing

Which method did you use? The Export-mailbox one or doing it through your client?

Thanks,

i do it through my outlook 2007 client.  file, import-export, then export the mailbox to a pst.  Import the exact way.  If you want you can always do a trial run, pick a box export it out and then import it back in.  Maybe pick a user who is no longer there :)
