Exchange 2013 Powershell Export Contacts to PST

1. The Exchange 2013 contacts that are to be exported must exist.
2. The Target PST file with its complete UNC path (abc \\PCName234\\C$\PST\ymcmail.pst) must be known.
3. The account must have the access to the PST file network location.

If the user satisfy the above points then he can execute the Powershell cmdlet command mentioned below to export exchange 2013 contacts to PST:

New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox abc_name -IncludeFolders “#Contacts#” -excludedumpster -file_path\\server_name\efg\lisa.pst

Open in new window

* abc_name is the mailbox which you want to export
* server_name is the name of the server
* efg is the name of Shared folder
* lisa.pst is the new PST file in which you want to export the contacts from Exchange mailbox

This complete command helps users in exporting contacts to PST from Exchange server 2007, 2010, 2013.

You can go through multiple mailboxes and export their contacts into a single PST file by running something like:

"mailbox1", "mailbox2", "mailbox3" | New-MailboxExportRequest -FilePath \\server\C$\Users\adminmotan\Documents\contacts.pst -IncludeFolders "#Contacts#" -ExcludeDumpster

With Exchange 2010 SP1, Export-Mailbox is gone. It has been replaced with New-MailboxExportRequest. However, neither can be used to export to a .CSV file.

The only way I know, is to export from Outlook. Here are links to manual ways. But you'll surely find some VB-Scripts on the Internet that automate this process.
