Exporting Exchange 2007 mailbox to PST

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction, I am trying to export certain mailboxes to PST's so that I can back them on on CD's and get them out of the exchange database.  I am trying to get this done through 32 bit exchange management tools and I am stumped to why I am getting the following message.  I have checked that I have admin rights to this mailbox.

Here is the command I am running:

[PS] Export-Mailbox -Identity XXXX -PSTFolderPath C:\PST\XXX.pst

Open in new window


Here is the error

Export-Mailbox : Error was found for XXXX (XXXX@XXXXX.net) because: Error occurred in the step: Moving messages. Failed to copy messages to the destinati on mailbox store with error:
MAPI or an unspecified service provider.
ID no: 00000000-0000-00000000, error code: -1056749164

   cipientTaskException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 3A21F93A,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Recipient

Can someone help me out please!

you probably need full access to mailbox. you can either do it from the exchange management console or

To solve this run this command in Exchange Management Shell
"Get-Mailbox Add-MailboxPermission -User "" -AccessRights FullAccess"
and try exporting again.

Thanks for the fast reply, I have run that code again to check and it says I already have Full Access rights.

Also, you must have Outlook installed in the 32bit box. Did you install it? Versions 2003 and 2007 will be fine. Install it, create your profile and try again.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Okay I created a new user called PSTAdmin, gave that user Exchange Administrator rights, then gave the PSTAdmin FullAccess to the user mailbox and ran the comand, still the same error.

Which Wndows version? If possible, try to use a Windows XP with Outlook 2003/2007. I'm sure it works fine.

I think you meant Windows 7. There is no Windows 2007. So, try Windows XP. It looks like a setup issue.

I am going to try XPpro as recommended, just hoping I still have a key ;-)  Still open to other ideas as well.
