I'm trying to Export one of our Mailboxes into a .PST file and having problems finding the right cmdlets. We are trying to export certain keywords of a users mailbox. I've tried using the cmdlet of -ContentFilter {All -like "Keyword Test"} without any luck.

This is what I've tried so far, but without any luck. New-MailboxExportRequest -ContentFilter {All -like "Keyword Test"} -Mailbox “Pelton” -Name DPeltonExp -FilePath \ExServer1\Imports\DPelton.pst

I've also tried the other following, but all .PST are empty of any emails. New-MailboxExportRequest -ContentFilter {All -like "Firstword Secondword"} -Mailbox “Pelton” -Name DPeltonExp -FilePath \ExServer1\Imports\DPelton.pst

New-MailboxExportRequest -ContentFilter {All -eq "Firstword Secondword"} -Mailbox “Pelton” -Name DPeltonExp -FilePath \ExServer1\Imports\DPelton.pst

New-MailboxExportRequest -ContentFilter {All -eq "Firstword Secondword"} -Mailbox “Pelton” -Name DPeltonExp -FilePath \ExServer1\Imports\DPelton.pst

Any and all help is appreciated. Thank you,

Please try using the Export-Mailbox command rather than New-MailboxExportRequest

Export-Mailbox -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -TargetMailbox <MailboxIdParameter> -TargetFolder <Target_Folder_Name> -ContentKeywords "<String[]>" -AttachmentFilenames "<String[]>" -StartDate "<Month/Day/Year> <Time>" -RecipientKeywords <String[]>
