  • There is no direct way to export to PST server-side, only some workarounds are available, such as performing an eDiscovery search. Your best option is to do the export clients-side, i.e. use Outlook: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Export-or-backup-email-contacts-and-calendar-to-an-Outlook-pst-file-14252b52-3075-4e9b-be4e-ff9ef1068f91?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

  • Hi BruceA10,

    I assume you have E3 or some other O365 license that may allow you to configure outlook profile for your mailbox. Simplest way out is to configure your email profile and use Export option to export your mailbox to PST . 

    Other wise the next option is to export out using Azure shared storage , which certainly invokes more steps you would like to avoid.

    Thank you Kelvin Howard, Vasil L. Michev and other for helping me out from this issue. I couldn't reply because I had used the solution provided by Kelvin. Best solution for me. Again thanks to Kelvin. Manual solution did not work for me.

  • Hi Bruce, I know it's been a while since you asked, but I thought I'd share with you how to do Office 365 Native PST Exports, since it seems everyone is recommending third party tools or exporting through Outlook in this thread. I wrote a guide on how to do the exports without utilities in a way that can be scaled from a single mailbox to every mailbox here
