Remove a Mailbox Export Request

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

Completed mailbox export requests aren't cleared automatically. You can remove fully or partially completed mailbox export requests by using the Remove-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet.

noteNote:
If you remove a partially completed mailbox export request, content already exported isn't removed from the .pst file. If you want to start a new mailbox export request to the same file and start with an empty .pst file, you must rename or delete the previous .pst file.
noteNote:
You can't use the Exchange Management Console (EMC) to remove an 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 removes the mailbox export request Ayla\MailboxExport.

Remove-MailboxExportRequest -Identity "Ayla\MailboxExport"

This example cancels a mailbox export request by using the RequestGuid parameter for a mailbox or archive on MBXDB01.

noteNote:
You should use the RequestGuid parameter only for debugging or troubleshooting purposes.
Remove-MailboxExportRequest -RequestQueue MBXDB01 -RequestGuid 25e0eaf2-6cc2-4353-b83e-5cb7b72d441f
