Have a SBS 2011 box with Exchange 2010 on it. Want to backup (export .pst) for several email accounts. I will create a separate profile and add their email accounts to my Outlook so I can do the backup. I would prefer not to change their passwords if possible but Outlook always asks for the password when I add the account. How can I grant myself full access permissions of these users email without having to change their password, if possible. Thx..

Hello,

You can export one by one or bulk export to PST with the Exchange Powershell console. Here more details to proceed :

Using powershell would be great ... I tried it and getting error ... the term New-MailboxExportRequest is not recognized as a cmdlet ...etc...
What step am I missing?

Did you launch the EMS (Exchange Management Shell) ? You have to use this instead of the regular PowerShell.

Launch it as admin though.

Let me know !

Is it a permission issue or because SBS 2011 Standard with Exchange 2010? Is there a similar PS command for Exchange 2010?

Can you see a file under the place you enter in the comand line (–FilePath “\\<servername>\Sharename\user.pst”) ?

It can take a while depending on the size of the mailbox.

It will be the same account as you used to launch the console. Did you launch the console as adminitrator ?

If not, check the rights on the shared folder. For example, try to create a folder manually then you'll see if you can write on it.

OK.. i just used another folder that I knew exchange has rights to it and it ran the command fine ... question .. it is still exporting ... in progress ... this is an account I had already exporting thru Outlook and the size of the pst was 426MB ... and I verified everything was there with an import. But this PS way, the file is still growing and it is already at 1.4GB ... any idea why?

You shouldn't have a so big difference, maybe the first export didn't take all the elements or something else.

You can try another mailbox and see if you have the same situation.

Not at all, except if you open them on old version of Outlook (like 2003) but it's not your case.

For all mailboxes you can go to the Bulk export section in the same link I sent, here the command :

$Export = get-mailbox; $Export|%{$_|New-MailboxExportRequest -FilePath \\localhost\PST\$($_.alias).pst}

By memory, it will do one by one. In any case, you should launch it when the server is less used.

I read that and it gives impression that it would export into one large pst and I needed them individually ... probably just misunderstood it ... thx for all your help...

Don't worry, it will export in separate PST files, because of that ($_.alias).pst. It will create a PST with the alias of user concerned.

My pleasure !
