Backing up emails from Outlook Web Access

    Question

  • Hello,

    Is there a way to back up emails on a workstation with users who use Outlook Web Access?  I know that this could be done with Outlook users by archiving their PST files from their profiles.  If it is not possible, is it a Exchange server thing?  What needs to be done to accomplish this?  The goal is to offload and cleanup old emails from the Exchange server for a bunch of users.

    Thanks,

  • You can't backup emails through OWA. On the exchange server you can use exmerge.

  • Agree with markmorow. The mailbox backup can’t be accomplished via OWA.

    The ExMerge is the option in exchange 2003. In the exchange 2007, you can use Export-Mailbox
