Receiving Export Reports

Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange can deliver detailed reports on export results:

  • To deliver reports to the current user, make sure this user has a valid e-mail address. Also, make sure that SMTP Settings are configured properly.
  • Having configured email settings for a different user account in Veeam Backup & Replication means that this user will also be receiving reports. Take into account, however, that if you enable such global settings during the current Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange session, you need to restart the application in order for the settings to take effect.
  • If you want a report to be included in the .pst archive, make sure that the current user's e-mail address is valid.

To generate a report, you can use 1-Click export feature or standard export operation.

The following table comprises fields that would be displayed in the report body.



Performed by

A software component responsible for performing export operation.


Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange build number. To view the build number, go to Main Menu and click About.

Percent complete

Total number of items included in the .pst file. Represented in per cents. For example, if there are 10 items in a folder and only 6 of them have been exported due to some search criteria, this value will be 60%. If the whole folder was exported, it will be 100%.

Started by

Export initiator or current user account running Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange.

The relative path to the object within the mail database from which data was exported. In the example, shown in the figure above, this is MBase01.edb\MB01\Drafts, that is, the Drafts folder in the mailbox MB01 of the MBase01.edb mail database.

Export type

Depending on the export scope, the following types are available:

  • All items.  The whole container that was selected for 1-click or regular export.
  • Selected items. One or several selected items.
  • Search results (only for regular export). This type occurs only if you select Export to .pst  and then in the Export dialog click Show settings and select the Save only items containing keywords.


A datastore(s) that contains exported items. In the example this would be the MBase01.edb.

Mailboxes to search

A mailbox(es) that contains exported items. If you select the whole datastore as a root object, all mailboxes in that datastore will be reported in this field.

When exporting search results only, consider the following:

  • The last field in the report will be Keyword hits. It will include the table containing:
    • Keyword. Search criteria
    • Hits. The number of exported items that matched the search keywords.
    • Mailboxes. The number of mailboxes comprising the search scope.
