Hi All,

Can anyone please assist me with the Exchange Server 2007 Powershell to successfully export all user email to PST, ideally one username one PST in a specific OU.

Is this possible to export all of the Archived emails as well ? (archived with Symantec Enterprise Vaults v8)

the end goal is to be able to import this into Exchange Server 2010

To export a mailbox to a PST file run:

Export-Mailbox -Identity TestUser -PSTFolderPath C:\temp

Open in new window


To be able to run this successful you need a 32 bit machine (Windows Xp, 7 or 8) runnning the Exchange Management Tools.

You can use following command to export all user mailboxes from a specific OU..
Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "test.com/Test/Users" | Export-Mailbox -PSTFolderPath C:\pst

Open in new window


As mentioned above, to export mailbox data to .pst file, you must run the Export-Mailbox cmdlet from a 32-bit computer. You need to install the 32-bit version of the Exchange management tools and Outlook 2003 SP2 or a later version on the computer.

Export-Mailbox will not export the archived emails from EV, you need to export it separately. If I am not wrong you need to do it from the EV console.

Hi Subsun, when I do the export from the Enteprise Vault, it can only export the archived emails not all the new emails ?

All good Man, it was due to the incorrect login that I'm using to execute the script.
