Export Mailboxes Larger than 2 GB to ANSI PSTs

I don't often just link to another blog posting for MY blog posting, but this one deserves it. It's not new, but last year fellow Exchange MVP Glen Scales wrote a script which allows you to export large mailboxes to ANSI PSTs.

It does this by copying each item in a source mailbox to a destination PST; when the destination PST is too big (i.e., 1.8 GB in size) the PST is closed and a new one opened. So a mailbox of 10 GB would take 6 PSTs to dump.

In the past, the only real way to handle this with ANSI PSTs was to manually configure a date range for archiving, or selectively export specific folders. This is a real win!

So, see Glen's post: Exporting a mailbox larger then 2 GB and spanning it across multiple PST files with a script.

Until next time...

As always, if there are items you would like me to talk about, please drop me a line and let me know!
