do you have access to a remote desktop session on the hosted server ? if so you can run the following from exchange shell:

$Export = Get-Mailbox
$Export|%{$_|New-MailboxExportRequest -FilePath "\\yourserver\sharename\$($_.alias).pst"}

Is the Exchange server in your office, or are you subscribing to a Hosted Exchange service like outlook.com or similar ?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

It is in my office but it is a hosted environment (multi tenant). So multiple hosted OUs in our  (only shell) environment of Exchange 2010 sp1

$Export = Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit Users
$Export|%{$_|New-MailboxExportRequest -FilePath "\\yourserver\sharename\$($_.alias).pst"}

The above will work from Exchange Shell. Change Users to the name of your OU, and define the UNC export path properly.

you may want to run Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit Users to view what mailboxes will be exported.
