firstly, how can you get to the exchange management shell on a 2008 windows server, could you show me with screenshots? i am very new to exchange..

And secondly, I have a few shell commands to run, i.e.

Get-PublicFolderDatabase | Select Name, Identity, MountAtStartup
Get-PublicFolderDatabase| Select Name, Identity, RetainDeletedItemsUntilBackup

I want the output to format as csv, I beleive there is a csv export feature, how could I tweak the above commands to export to csv, i.e. to c:\output\1.csv? Can anyone assist?

The shell can be found by Default in your Startmenue called "Exchange Management Shell" or you can create a shortcut yourself:
C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -noexit -command ". 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\bin\RemoteExchange.ps1'; Connect-E"

Open in new window

Get-PublicFolderDatabase | Select Name, Identity, MountAtStartup | Export-Csv c:\output\1.csv

Open in new window

Get-PublicFolderDatabase| Select Name, Identity, RetainDeletedItemsUntilBackup | Export-Csv c:\output\1.csv

Open in new window
