Do you want to remove the mailbox from the server or do you want to keep the mailbox on the server. I couldn't really understand your statement about that part.

The below cmdlets will export the mailbox to a pst file for you:

New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox "username" -FilePath \\sharename\PSTFileShare\usermailbox.pst

Please checkout the following command:

New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox {mailbox-alias} -ContentFilter {(Received -lt ’01/01/2017’)} -FilePath \\{server-name}\{folder}\{file-name}.pst

Export ALL Mailboxes to  PST

foreach ($Mailbox in (Get-Mailbox)) { New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox $Mailbox -FilePath “\\{server-name}\{folder-name}\$($Mailbox.Alias).pst” }

I want to export and remove the mailbox both at once

You will need to perform the export first, and you can do that with the cmdlet i gave you in the my original reply.

Do you want to remove the mailbox and delete the user object also, or remove the mailbox and disable the user object?

This will remove the mailbox and disable the user object in AD
Disable-Mailbox "user name"

This will remove the mailbox and delete the user object in AD
Remove-Mailbox "user name"
