A mailbox export request is the process of exporting mailbox or archive data to a .pst file. You can view the properties of an export request, or you can view the statistics. The properties provide you with basic information about the status of an export request. The statistics provide you with detailed information that can be used for troubleshooting purposes.

noteNote:
You can't use the Exchange Management Console (EMC) to view the properties of a mailbox export request. You must use the Shell.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Import Export" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

This example returns the default information about the status of the ongoing export request Tony\DB01toPST. By default, the type of information includes the name of the request, the mailbox for which the request is being performed, and the status of the request.

Get-MailboxExportRequest -Identity "Tony\DB01toPST"

This example returns additional information about the status of the ongoing export request Tony\DB01toPST by pipelining the results to the Format-List command.

Get-MailboxExportRequest -Identity "Tony\DB01toPST" | Format-List

This example returns information about export requests that have a status of In Progress and are exporting data from a mailbox or archive that resides on database DB01.

Get-MailboxExportRequest -Status InProgress -Database DB01

This example returns information about export requests in the Attachment_CompanyReport batch that have a status of Completed.

Get-MailboxExportRequest -BatchName "Attachment_CompanyReport" -Status Completed

This example returns all export requests that have the name DB01toPST and have a status of Suspended.

Get-MailboxExportRequest -Name "DB01toPST" -Suspend $true

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Get-MailboxExportRequest.

By default, the Get-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet returns the name of the request, the mailbox for which the request is being performed, and the status of the request. The following table lists the information that's returned if you pipeline the Format-List command:

Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -Identity Tony\MailboxExport

This example returns additional information about the export request Tony\MailboxExport by using the IncludeReport parameter and by pipelining the results to the Format-List command.

Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -Identity Tony\MailboxExport -IncludeReport | Format-List 

This example returns detailed statistics for the export request Tony\MailboxExport and exports the report to a .csv file.

Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -Identity Tony\MailboxExport | Export-CSV \\ExportRequest_Reports\Tony_Exportstats.csv

This example returns additional information for all the export requests that have a status of Failed by using the IncludeReport parameter, and then saves the information to the text file AllExportReports.txt.
