  • Hi,

    Which Exchange version are you used?

    We can use New-MailboxExportRequest (Exchange 2010 and later) or Export-Mailbox (Exchange 2007) to export mailbox to .PST file.

    For example:
    New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox Kweku -FilePath "\\SERVER01\PSTFileShare\Kweku_Archive.pst"
    Export-Mailbox –Identity Kweku -PSTFolderPath "\\SERVER01\PSTFileShare\Kweku_Archive.pst"

    Meanwhile, we can configure Outlook with this mailbox as Exchange account, then export mailbox content to .PST file.

  • Hope this article helps: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd298021(v=exchg.150).aspx

    It's very exhaustive but it mentions the logging feature you require.

  • Hi

    May be You can use Ediscovery  and download pst file and create log file? 

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn440164(v=exchg.150).aspx

    In addition to the PST files that contain the search results, two other files are also exported:

    • A configuration file (.txt file format) that contains information about the PST export request, such as the name of the eDiscovery search that was exported, the date and time of the export, whether de-duplication and unsearchable items were enabled, the search query, and the source mailboxes that were searched.

    • A search results log (.csv file format) that contains an entry for each message returned in the search results. Each entry identifies the source mailbox where the message is located. If you’ve enabled de-duplication, this helps you identify all mailboxes that contain a duplicate message.

    best regards

  • Hi DNair,

    Would you please provide more details about “Log”?

    As we know, the mailbox export request will export all mailbox content to .PST, for example inbox, calendar and etc. However, there's no "Log" folder.

    No - this is no longer needed.  Exchange 2010 SP1 added a native PST reader/writer. 

    And Exchange 2007 is now dead :)
