Exchange 2010 Command Line to Export Mailbox to PST

Login to the exchange server with an account that has appropriate rights to perform the export operation. This account may have to have Export rights granted.

The domain administrator account, if you have access to it, will already be enabled and granted the rights to export a mailbox to a PST file.

Once logged on, start an Exchange Management Shell session.

Enter the following command :

New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox {user alias without the squiggly brackets}  -FilePath \\A file server on your network\a shared folder\name-of-the-pst-file.pst

The following screenshot is from a real export on a real server (this was not on a lab server)
