Exchange 2010 SP1 – Exporting mailboxes to PST or another mailbox or mailbox folder

Posted on December 1, 2010

Just a quick note that several changes to the export features built into Exchange 2010 have been revised in SP1. The following are quick commands to help you get it done quickly.

1) Export a mailbox directly to a PST file

New-MailboxExportRequest -mailbox {mailbox} -FilePath \\server\folder\mailbox.pst

This will export the entire mailbox to a location and file name of your choice.

2) Export a mailbox directly to another mailbox

New-MailboxExportRequest -mailbox {mailbox} -FilePath \\server\folder\mailbox.pst
New-MailboxImportRequest -mailbox {newmailbox} -FilePath \\server\folder\mailbox.pst

This will export/import the entire mailbox contents to an alternative mailbox. Existing data located in the destination mailbox will be merged with the incoming data.

3) Export a mailbox directly into a unique folder in another mailbox

New-MailboxExportRequest -mailbox {mailbox} -FilePath \\server\folder\mailbox.pst
New-MailboxImportRequest -mailbox {newmailbox} -FilePath \\server\folder\mailbox.pst -targetrootfolder "Mailbox Contents"

This particular process is extremely useful when employees are terminated or leave the organization.
