Exchange 2007/Outlook 2013 - Export Mailbox/Folder
Posted on 2014-01-20
I have a client with a Windows SBS 2008/Exchange 2007. One of the users has a huge Mailbox - 30GB and over 106,000 Deleted Items. For reasons I don't want to go into, I need to copy all messages from his Deleted Items into a PST file but am not having any luck. I'd settle for his entire Mailbox if I could. He's using Outlook 2013 with All messages cached on a Windows 7 Pro box.
When I try File, Options, Advanced, Export -- or if I create a PST file, go to Deleted Items, CTRL-A for Select All, then drag to the PST folder with CTRL held down to Copy, Outlook 2013 crashes after it copies about 2,000 Messages.
My company has Exchange 2010 which has the New-MailboxExportRequest command that we use to export Exchange data to PST files for archiving (which doesn't always work, either, but that's another story), but apparently Exchange 2007 doesn't support that command.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can copy this data off to a PST file? I understand you can't just rename an OST file to PST due to security issues. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
