Hi lawsupport,

Yes, you can with PowerShell.

To export data to a .pst file, run the following command:
Export-Mailbox -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -PSTFolderPath <Path_Of_PST_Folder>\<File_Name>.pst

Open in new window

Use the following command...

Export-mailbox -identity MailboxToExpport -PSTFolderPath "c:\pstfiles\username.pst" -baditemlimit 1000000 -confirm:$false

Open in new window

Make sure that you have full mailbox permission on the mailbox you want to export.

Hi Lawsupport,

To export data from a .pst file, you must run the Export-Mailbox cmdlet from a 32-bit computer that has the following installed:

- The 32-bit version of the Exchange management tools

- Outlook 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Outlook 2007

For information about Exchange 2007 management tools 32-bit download, see Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Management Tools (32-Bit).
