I'm trying to export a users mailbox in Exchange 2010.  I currently use the following command through EMS New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox username -FilePath uncpath to share.  This works great in most cases.  I'm getting a few request to only export mail only and to exclude all other folders such contatcts, calendars, etc.  

The other aspect I see is a folder called Recoverable items.  What is this folder?

If you want to export a particular folder you would use the same command as above with the -IncludeFolders switch. It would look something like this for the Inbox and all subfolders:

New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox username -FilePath uncpath to share -IncludeFolders Inbox/*

Look at the switch within the documentation for further: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff607299(v=exchg.141).aspx

Recoverable items is the dumpster in older version. When an item is not hard deleted (shift-delete) it is held within the Recoverable Items \ Deletion folder. It stays there until the single item recovery retention period (typically on the database) is met and then clears out those items.

More about the recoverable items folder, as I barely got into it above (I could, but it would be a book):  http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2009/09/25/3408389.aspx
