Export Exchange Mailbox to PST File

cbader
The company I work for needs to preserve emails due to a lawsuit. There are specific mailboxes I want to be able to export to a PST file from the server so that it contains all folders, messages, contacts, and calendar items. I do not want to make any changes to the existing mailbox, so nothing should be deleted after the export.

The mail server is running Exchange 2003 SP1

    You need Microsoft Exchange Server Mailbox Merge Wizard (ExMerge), which is available at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=429163ec-dcdf-47dc-96da-1c12d67327d5&displaylang=en.

    You can make a complete copy of the mailbox with that utility.

    You will need to find another tool to export mailboxes other than exmerge.

    1) Download ExMerge on to a Windows 2003 server with Exchange running on it.
    2) Copy exchmem.dll to the folder with the ExMerge contents.
    3) Give full perms to administrator or the user you logged in as to the server and mailboxes.

    a. In Exchange Manager, right click in server, properties and then security
    b. Uncheck inherit
    c. Add everyone, and give full control to everyone.
    d. Take ownership
    This ensures that you have the require send as and receive as, but the step here are very insecure. While this is insecure, it does effectively allow a mailbox backup or each user for a system that is about to be decommissioned.
