What version of exchange are you running?  Do you have outlook installed on the server you are running the command from?  If you are running exchange 2007 you will need to do this from a 32bit OS.  If running exchange 2010 you will need to run it from a 64bit OS with 64bit outlook and use command New-MailboxExportRequest.

Sorry...we are running Exch 2007...and no I do not have Outlook installed on our Exchange Server.

if the OS is 64bit...how can I run on 32bit?....can you install Exchange Management Shell on another system?

Thanks!

Yes. you can install it on a 32-bit machine on domain. Below are the pre-requisites which made my export to PST successful.

1.      Windows 7 32-bit operating system.
2.      Microsoft Office Outlook 2010.
3.      32-bit Exchange 2007 SP1 or later management tools.
4.      The User Account Control properties must be set to “Never notify”
6.      Make sure the account has full access to the folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Logging\
7.      Account must have full access on the mailbox to be exported (Add-MailboxPermission)
8.      The account running the command must be an Exchange Organization Administrator or an Exchange Server Administrator.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

yes, you will need to download the 32bit Exchange Management Tools and install outlook on a remote machine and then run the command.  You will not be able to do it locally.  http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=11876
