    Copy folder from one mailbox to another - Exchange 2007

    Hi guys,

    I need to move a folder from one teachers mailbox to another. They only use OWA, not outlook so not .pst. Can it only be done in EMC?

    Cheers

    Ben

    The way i would suggest doing it (although requires outlook) is open both mailboxes in Outlook on a pc and drag and drop the folder.

    @ben - Export the folder and then import again using Powershell via the EMS.

    Then import.

    Can I do that without the mailbox it's going into password? I know I can give myself full access rights to mailboxes, but how do I then do that in outlook?

    For my suggestion you would neither full access to the mailbox or the password to both mailboxes

    Thanks Sukh, I looked at that this morning. Wondered if there was an easier way to be hinest. Just being lazy. I can never get the syntax 100% in the new power shell. I'll just do it that way, makes more sense in the long run.

    Cheers

    How then? I'm obviously being thick. How can I mount another users mailbox in outlook without either using their password (effectively setting it up as if I was them) or modifying the access rights?

    Sorry...it's nearly the weekend

    @ben - You cant- You need to authenticate as a user who has permissions. If you use the Outlook method you have to have access to the mailbox.

    Why not use Powershell?

    That's what I thought, but Glennda doesn't think so.

    I'll give the powershell a go, but it's not my strong point...

    @ben - If powershell isnt you strong point, then you can try, if not the just use the Outlook method.

    You gona need full mailbox access which ever method you use.

    Super. Got it working in powershell but it is doing the entire mailbox. Which switch do I use to specify a subfolder called SEN in the INBOX folder?

    Thanks

    @ben use the -IncludeFolders and -ExcludeFolders. By default all system folders are exported, i.e calendar, inbox, contacts etc..

    So exclude the system folders, "-ExcludeFolders "\Junk E-Mail","\Contacts" etc.. etc..

    You could always use the folllowing:

    Export-Mailbox -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -IncludeFolders '\Sent Items' -PSTFolderPath <Path_Of_PST_Folder>\<File_Name>.pst
