Filterable Properties for the -ContentFilter Parameter

Exchange 2010
 

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

Topic Last Modified: 2015-09-10

This topic lists the filterable properties for the ContentFilter parameter. The ContentFilter parameter is used to export messages to a .pst file that match the filter. The ContentFilter parameter is used in the New-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet.

Many of the properties for the ContentFilter parameter accept wildcard characters. If you use a wildcard character, use the -like operator instead of the -eq operator. The -like operator is used to find pattern matches in rich types, such as strings, whereas the -eq operator is used to find an exact match.

The following table contains a list of the filterable properties for the ContentFilter parameter. This table lists the name of the property, a description, the acceptable values, and a syntax example. For more information about OPATH filters, see Creating Filters in Recipient Commands.
