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 ?

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.
