Export Exchange mailbox to PST
How to export a mailbox from Exchange 2007 SP1 to a PST file:
You will need a machine with a 32-bit version of Windows (Windows 7 is fine) and Outlook 2003 or 2007.
Join the machine to the domain that contains the Exchange server.
Log on as a domain administrator.
Install Exchange Server Management Tools 2007 SP1. To achieve this, insert the Exchange disc, do a custom installation, and only select the Management Tools.
Open Exchange Management Shell.
Give the current user permissions to the mailbox you want to export:
Add-MailboxPermission -Identity <email> -User <domain\currentuser> -AccessRights FullAccess
- where EMAIL is the e-mail address of the mailbox you want to export, and DOMAIN\CURRENTUSER is the name of the user you are logged on with.
Export the mailbox to a PST file:
Export-Mailbox -Identity <email> -PSTFolderPath <c:\some_path>
- where EMAIL is the e-mail address of the mailbox you want to export, and C:\SOME_PATH is some path (doesn’t have to be on C: of course).
