Hi Guys,

I wonder if you can help. Someone in our organisation wasmade redudant due to the role she was carrying out was no longer there. Since being gone she has begun to make accusations about her boss. Everyone in the organisation knows it's a ploy to get a payoff at tribunal.

HR have asked me whether I can pull together all the emails between this ex-employee and her boss, both sent and received from each other.

I cannot carry out this task manually, it would take just too long. What is the best way to do this via powershell?

Hi SimonBrook,

Please go through the below Technet articular will give you more information about Exchange commands will show you commands can use on powershell. And allow you to pull out the old mail box. Once you have old mail box you can configured on local outlook and look the all mails.

Why it is difficult for you to manually export these emails? Just connect her mailbox and mailbox of the boss. After that create a search folder in her mailbox that finds all messages for and from the boss. Then just drag-drop these emails to a new PST. And then create the similar folder in mailbox of the boss (for and from her). Also drag-drop emails to the PST. That's all!
