Exchange 2010 sp1 Mailbox export to PST

In Exchange 2010, Outlook was required to be installed on the server in order to export a mailbox to PST. This is no longer the case and the MailboxExportRequest commandlet runs without any additional requirements after the install of Exchange 2010 sp1, except the user must have the “Mailbox Import Export” role.

Syntax:


# Export request command
New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox "name" -FilePath "\\uncpath\name.pst"

# Check on request status
Get-MailboxExportRequest | Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics

# Remove request after completion
Get-MailboxExportRequest |Remove-MailboxExportRequest
