Hi,

I'm about to recreate one mailbox that is corrupted and I'm just wondering what is the difference between the following two action assuming both of them is done manually (not scripted):

1. using Powershell Export-Mailbox to PST
2. opening the account using Outlook 2007 and then manually Export to PST

both of the above steps then followed by account delete & create and the reverse action (import-mailbox and Outlook import).

I know that the user permission and setting must be done manually (eg. taking the screenshot from Exchange Server and then manually applied it).

Thanks.

Export-Mailbox can also capture the items from the dumpster area.
So you can end up with more mail than was visible in Outlook.

I mean all data able to be picked up when the reg key DumpsterAlwaysOn is used in Outlook.

Normally able to be seen only from the Deleted Items folder, but exists for all outlook folders.

The users will not see anything, or be impacted by the export.
