Ladies and Gents,

I am looking to modify this script to add logic to it.

$content = get-content "c:\test.txt"

foreach ($user in $content)
{export-mailbox $user -IncludeFolders "\Inbox","\Sent Items","\Deleted Items" -pstfolderpath c:\$user._Mailbox.pst}

Open in new window


(The logic I would like to add would be a check)

To make sure that I have full mailbox rights prior to attempting the export mailbox command.

add-mailboxpermission -Id “$user” -User “testadmin” -AccessRights FullAccess -Deny:$false

Open in new window


If FullAccess is found to be false then run the above command and make it true.

I need the logic statement listed above to be a  challenge statement at the beginning of the script

Note the $user var at the top. This data will be pulled from an external source called test.txt

I would also like to add code that will export the entire output to a log file in the same file location. (c:\exportMailbox.log}

You can use something like the below

$content = get-content "c:\test.txt"
start-transcript C:\exportmailbox.txt
foreach ($user in $content){
$Access = (Get-Mailbox $user | Get-MailboxPermission | where {$_AccessRights -eq "FullAccess"}).User
if($Access -notcontains "domain\username"){
add-mailboxpermission -Id $user -User “testadmin” -AccessRights FullAccess -Deny:$false}
export-mailbox $user -IncludeFolders "\Inbox","\Sent Items","\Deleted Items" -pstfolderpath c:\$user._Mailbox.pst
stop-transcript}
