  • How can I save items in my Inbox before transferring  from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010?  I would like to save them outside of Outlook to minimize transfer time.

  • 1. Not sure what your bandwidth is but the move should be seamless to the user if properly planned and scheduled.

    2. Also, I believe if youre using SP2 for exch 2007 it will be an online move (im quite sure)

    3. If you do want to move items out, then export them to a PST either through Outlook or from the EMS.

  • Yes Sukh is correct.

    But why would you want to pst the items out?  Just do a mailbox move, it will be online also.

  • You may export/import as pst

    Export-Mailbox -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -PSTFolderPath <Path_Of_PST_Folder>\<File_Name>.pst

    Import-Mailbox -Identity name@contoso.com -PSTFolderPath C:\PSTFiles\name.pst

  • Hi,

    From your description, you can try to use Export-Mailbox command to export mailbox to PST file.

    Thanks
