With so many activities to perform, Exchange administrators are always busy in organizations. If everything, including Exchange Servers, Outlook clients, and Office 365 accounts work without any issues, they can sit and relax. But unfortunately, it is not the scenario in most of the organizations. However, this situation can be improved very much if they try a competent recovery-cum-migration solution in their Exchange environment – Kernel Exchange Suite.

Kernel Exchange Suite can resolve all the Exchange related issues. If you have this too, you do not need to use different tools for the file recovery (EDB, OST, & PST) and migrations (Office 365 & Exchange). 


  • EDB recovery & migration
  • OST conversion & saving in Exchange/Office 365
  • PST file recovery to various destinations
  • Exchange & Office 365 migrations

As much as Microsoft wants to kill off PST file support, just as they tried to do with public folders, there are still times when it is useful or downright necessary to export Exchange mailboxes to PST files.


Thankfully, it is still possible to export mailboxes to PST from within the EAC (Exchange Admin Centre) if you are willing to jump through a few hoops. The basic process for exporting mailboxes is,


  1. Create a share to export to
  2. Assign yourself import / export permissions
  3. Export the mailbox


1. Creating a share


As exchange is now mostly managed through a web interface rather than a console you need to setup a share to export these PST files to. It’s up to you where you place this share but make sure:


  • There is enough space for the PST files
  • The Exchange server can access to the share
  • Clean it up after


So, let’s create a share, call it EXUtil$, share it with everyone, full control. For your NTFS Permissions make sure that the Exchange Trusted Subsystem object has full control. 



As a quick test just make sure you can browse to the share from the exchange server and that there are no networking issues stopping you.



2. Import / Export Permissions


Even if you are already a Domain / Enterprise admin you won’t have access to export to PST by default. To set give yourself the correct permissions


  1. Open the Exchange Admin Centre (EAC)
  2. Click Permissions from the left-hand side
  3. Select Admin roles from the top
  4. Click Organization Management from the list
  5. Click the Pencil to edit
  6. Add a member and select the user you wish to give permissions
  7. Click on OK


3. Exporting the mailbox data to PST


First, make sure that you are logged into EAC as the user that you just gave import / export permissions to. Now we need to find the user who we are going to be exporting to PST, click the ellipses (the 3 dots) next to that user and select Export to a PST file from the drop down. 



Now you have an option to export the contents of the mailbox or the contents of the archive. Select the one you want, if you want both you will have to submit two separate jobs. 



Next fill in the path of the share that you created before, also give the PST file a name. 



And finally, select a user whom you wish to notify when the job completes. 



You will be notified when the job starts, completes or fails



Once the job has finished the PST file will appear in the share that you created!
