How to export user mailbox data to new mailbox RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, i would like to export all emails from a user mailbox to a new mailbox (something like copy and paste). I have tried power shell commands in this link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb266964%28v=exchg.80%29.aspx but not successful. Im getting errors saying it not the supported command.

    Scenario: Copy Mails from User A (Old Mailbox) >export> To User A (New Mailbox).

    Can someone advise?

    Thanks

  • Hi

    You can export the mail to PST and then import the PST again into the new mailbox.

    What version of exchange are you on?

  • You can export the mailbox to PST either from Outlook or from the server.

    Then import it back to the new mailbox. You can use the Exchange PST Capture tool to import it, if you want a graphical free tool (from MS).

  • Hi,

    In Exchange 2007, you can use the Export-Mailbox cmdlet to export mailbox and then import to the new mailbox.

    To export data, you need to run the Export-Mailbox cmdlet from a 32-bit computer that has the following installed:

    • The 32-bit version of the Exchange management tools
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 SP2 or later versions

    And you need to have the Full Access permission to the source and target mailboxes.

    In addition, the account must be delegated the Exchange Server Administrators role and local Administrators group for the source server and the target server.

    If you have checked above, and the issue persists, to troubleshoot this problem more efficiently, I recommend you post the error message when you run the Export-Mailbox cmdlet in Exchange 2007 for more analysis.

    Best regards,
    Belinda

    Very nicely  explain above about how to manually Export-Mailbox, there are some third party software also available for same task you can check such a software from here http://www.edbtopstfile.org/ . By using this software, which is well known as Kernel for Exchange Server Recovery one can easily export mailbox without facing any error.
