Exhcnage 2010 New-MailboxExportRequest


i have a MAILBOX in a exchange 2010 RECOVERY db (database restored from backup)
now i want to export this mailbox to a .PST file

there is no possibility to EXPORT this mailbox DIRECT to a .PST file as i cannot choose a DATABASE?

New-MailboxExportRequest  -Mailbox NAME_Y –FilePath “\\localhost\d$\pst\NAME_Y.pst

so, i must first RESTORE this mailbox to a "destination" mailbox correct?
my question: to which temporary mailbox can i restore this? so that the original used mailbox is NOT effected...

restore-mailbox -Identity "NAME_AAA" -RecoveryDatabase  RecoveryDB001 -RecoveryMailbox "NAME_BBB"

1) is NAME_AAA the destination (TO which mailbox i want restore) or NAME_BBB ?
2) can i choose a NEW temporary mailbox (will this be created automatically) or must i restore TO/IN an existing mailbox?

MASTechnical Department HeadCommented:
Simply create a temporary mailbox in the production store and then run the restore-mailbox command to that mailbox i.e., recoverTMP. Think of Recovery-Mailbox as the source and the identity mailbox as the target and make sure you use the display name of the source mailbox in the command line.if you use the alias the coomand will fail. Hope this helps.
