I am running a 2008 Server Std with Exchange 2007 installed. I am attempting to setup a Mail Impersonator, so I can archive mailboxes and delete the accounts.
I am finding that some of the commands are not found when I attempt to run them in the Exchange Management Shell.
They are;
and a few others that I can't remember at the moment.

Can anyone tell me why these cmdlets aren't here and where can I get find them?

Those commands are for Exchange 2010, not for Exchange 2007.

For Exchange 2007, try these

The service account user must have the following permissions:
¦ Ms-Exch-EPI-Impersonation
¦ Ms-Exch-EPI-May-Impersonate

You can run the following command from Exchange PowerShell to provide this permission:

Get-ExchangeServer | where {$_.IsClientAccessServer -eq $TRUE} | ForEach-Object {Add-ADPermission -Identity $_.distinguishedname -User (Get-User -Identity User1 | select-object).identity -extendedRight ms-Exch-EPI-Impersonation}

Get-MailboxDatabase | ForEach-Object {Add-ADPermission -Identity $_.DistinguishedName -User User1 -ExtendedRights ms-Exch-EPI-May-Impersonate}

If you look at the link Simon provided, it has more info for you.
