Extract Exchange Mailbox to PST

I need to extract a user mailbox to PST.  We are running Exchange 2007 SP3.

If I simply extact this direct from Outlook 2010 (export to a file) will this work?

I need anyone who needs to attach the created  PST to their own Outlook client not to have any issues accessing the PST.

Thanks for the comments.

This PST wont be used for shared access.

Does it make a difference if the PST was created in a 64bit version of Outlook 2010?  

In other words will the PST still be accessible in Outlook 2010 32 bit.

Does it make a difference if the PST was created in a 64bit version of Outlook 2010 - No that wouldnt make any difference

Yes the PST can be used on a 32 bit machine as well

A .PST is a .PST - they only have one flavour and they can be read by anything that can read a .pst file no matter how many bits that computer is configured for.

Yeah, the only difference in a PST file is the OLD format which had a 2GB limit, and the newer unicode format. The new format has existed since Outlook 2003, and can be quite large.

If you have a windows xp pro workstation

you can use the Exchange management tools from that computer and use this command

export-mailbox -identity userA -baditemlimit 100 -pstfolderpath c:\temp

This will export UserA mailbox to a pst file in folder temp as usera.pst

If you need the instructions I am working on a Blog now to post on this site.

Let me know and hope this helps.

I'm interested i the Exchange Management toold so I can do these tasks from a client machine.
 
Am I correct in suggesting this Export command will only work from a 32bit client?
