Exchange: Batch searching with EMS.

I have multiple Exchange Servers and I need to search for specific keywords across emails and attachments.  I would like to use EMS and a batch file to perform this.

Does anyone know if this is possible, and if so if you could provide some examples?  The output that I am looking for is a listing of every item in exchange that is responsive to the keywords.

This is for Exchange 2010.

You can use the following script below to accomplish this.

NOTE: before running the script you need to run the command below...
New-ManagementRoleAssignment -Role "Mailbox Import Export" -SecurityGroup "YourSecurityGroupName"


This script will find all of the users in your domain and export each mailbox in its own PST file with any of the contents you are looking for.
$Mailbox = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited
Foreach ($user in $Mailbox) {
New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox $user -ContentFilter {(body -like "*your txt here*")} -FilePath "\\SERVER\ShareName\$user.pst
}

Open in new window

You can try to do an exchange discovery search on all mailboxes via ECP or using the following on EMS. Make sure you have got the discovery management role group permission first (get-rolegroupmember -identity "Discovery Management").

New-MailboxSearch -Name "name this search" -StartDate "mm/dd/yyyy" -EndDate "mm/dd/yyyy" -TargetMailbox "target mailbox name" -SearchQuery '"content 1" and "content 2"' -MessageTypes Email -IncludeUnsearchableItems -LogLevel Full

This will create a search folder on the target mailbox and run a search against all mailboxes in your domain.
