Taking export of user's mailbox/Outlook data RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Two of our users are leaving our company to work for a sister organisation where they have a different Exchange org etc. These users need their mail data exported to PST file.

    I need to make sure that I get all their data off ok.

    I've given myself rights to their mailbox, was wondering on the best process to export the data to a PST file each on my PC.

    I could either:

    1. Add them to my existing profile, then Import and Export Wizard > Export to a file > PST, but then I don't seem to be able to click on "Mailbox - User1", only Inbox, Calendar etc seperately. Does anyone know how I can get everything in one PST?

    2. Create a seperate profile for each user on my PC and do the above but, again, not sure how I can export all mailbox data to one PST file, rather than having seperate ones for Inbox, Calender, Notes, Tasks etc

    Could someone help me?

    Since this is an Exchange forum I think it's safe to suggest the use
    of export-mailbox to you, the administrator.
