    Exchange 2007 - Need help ASAP

    Hey all,

    We have a situation here and need to search all staff/student email inboxes for an attachment, as a matter of urgency. It's a .docx file.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

    How many users are you talking about ? If not that many you could export all the mailboxes as individual .PSTs, index them and then search.... Would not fancy doing that myself mind you....

    PowerShell is definitely the best way, these two pages should give you some clues
    How to Export Mailbox Data: Exchange 2007 Help
    Export-Mailbox: Exchange 2007 Help

    Give the command a target mailbox and a target folder (it'll create it if it doesn't already exist) and it will move everything there. You may have to lift size restrictions on that target mailbox. There are various criteria you can search on, date range is certainly worth using.

    e.g. you could run
    Code:
    get-mailbox -Database Staff | Export-Mailbox -IncludeFolders "\Inbox" -SubjectKeywords "SUBJECT KEYWORD" -StartDate "MM/DD/YYYY" -DeleteContent
    to search Staff inboxes for an email with the subject SUBJECT KEYWORD from the startdate you're telling it.
