Exporting to Custom Location

Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange allows you to export mailbox store data to a custom location as PST files.


Export operations require Microsoft Outlook to be installed on a computer running Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange.

To export objects to a custom location, do the following:

  1. Do one of the following:
  • In the navigation pane, select a folder, a mailbox, a mailbox store or all stores added to the scope.
  • In the preview pane, select an item.
  1. Do one of the following:
  • On the Home/Mailbox/Folder/Items tab, click Export Stores/Export Mailbox/Export Folder/Export Items > Export to .pst file on the ribbon.
  • Right-click an object and select Export to .pst file.

Exporting to Custom Location

  1. In the Export Folder/Export Mail Items window, do the following:
  1. In the Export location field, specify the name and location for the new PST file.
  2. Select the Apply filter check box and enter keywords to export only those items that match specified criteria. To provide multiple keywords, use the OR logical operator as the delimiter.

Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange will check for the specified keywords in all fields such as From, To, Subject and Body.

The Apply filter option is only available when exporting folders and mailboxes, not items.

  1. Select the Limit PST size to check box and specify the size of which to export PST files.

With this option, Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange will create multiple PST files as of the specified size.
