Hi,

I'm looking for the best way to export a .pst from the Office 365 Admin center or PS. Previously with 2010 i'd use the export command in PS and disable the account from EMC. The best way i've found is to use the compliance management and the eDiscovery tool to search a .pst and download the results from there, then do a soft delete from the O365 connector.

Does anyone know of a better way?

Many thanks

That's precisely the article i used but i wasn't sure if it was the correct approach? It also doesn't mention about deleting the .pst's afterwards.

The easiest way is that you can download the emails in Outlook and then copy all to the PST File.

If you need to save the user mailbox to free up a license, just convert it to a shared mailbox--provided it is less than 50GB in size.  After you convert the user mailbox to a shared mailbox, remove the license.  The shared mailbox will remain indefinitely.  If you ever need to access it, set Full Access permissions and you will have access to it in Outlook and OWA.

This is an option if you are running the Outlook client as you can export to PST once you are connected to the shared mailbox.

Unfortunately, there are not a lot of options to export to PST using Office 365 PowerShell (New-MailboxExportRequest is not available) or the Exchange Admin Center other than what has already been stated.  However, here are a couple 3rd party tools if that interests you.
