Powershell Exchange Script

Hi Experts,

I have the following code:

Export-Mailbox –Identity "Mail" -PSTFolderPath C:\Mail\mail.user -Confirm:$false

Open in new window

I would like to add the creation date to the pst file that is created. Is this possible? Any help will be appreciated.

Should be able to do this.

$Today= Get-Date -format M-d-yyyy
Export-Mailbox –Identity "Mail" -PSTFolderPath C:\Mail\mail.user-$today -Confirm:$false

That will work but what if it is run the same day? this will overwrite the file. How can we timestamp this too?
