Create a Mailbox Export Request

also the cmdlet to view the queue and the remove from list when complete ?


View Mailbox Export Request Properties


Remove a Mailbox Export Request

also, this is done through the exchange management shell or by loading the cmdlets in powershell manually

First, what exchange version that you are using?

If you are using Exchange 2007, then you can use Export-Mailbox


if you are using Exchange 2010, then you can use New-MailboxExportRequest


View queue - Get-Queue

*sigh* - I think he meant the MRS queue which is Get-MailboxExportRequest

Create a new mailbox export that will export all items in a mailbox:

New-MailboxExportRequest -Identity mailtoexport@contoso.com -PSTFolderPath C:\Location\PSTName.pst

Open in new window

View items that are pending in the MRS (Mailbox Replication Service) queue that need to be exported:


Open in new window


Open in new window

When its all done, you can remove the Mailbox export requests in bulk. I usually do this:

Get-MailboxExportRequest -Status Completed | Remove-MailboxExportRequest -Confirm:$FALSE

Open in new window
