Copy e-mails from one account to another within office 365

Last Modified: 2015-10-13
Dear Experts

I want to move(copy) mailbox contents (emails, contacts & calendar items) to another mailbox within the same tenant (same exchange plan). I don't want to export and import as PST simply because the size of the mailboxes and possibility of corruption.
I found the following powershell commands to transfer mailbox cotent and structure however powershell doesn't recognise the command "search-mailbox"

powershell command:
Search-Mailbox -Identity "Joe Healy"   -TargetMailbox "Jim Park"  -TargetFolder   "JoeHealy-ProjectHamilton" -LogLevel Full

Please can someone shed some light on how this can be acheived using office 365 powershell.

Many Thanks
