Exporting Contacts from a Users Mailbox to a PST file

This may be of use to some of you:

A 32-bit Windows machine with Outlook 2003 SP2 or above and with the Exchange Tools installed also
An admin account with a Mailbox attached

What to do:
Open the Powershell Window

Run the following commands:
Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Powershell.Admin

Add-MailboxPermission –Identity “Users Full Name” –User UserNameOfAdminAccount –AccessRights Fullaccess –Inheritance all 

Export-Mailbox -Identity UsersFullEmailAddress –PSTFolderPath OutputFileLocation\.pst -IncludeFolders “\Contacts”

This can then be opened in Outlook and the contents viewed. The “\Contents” can be replaced with any other folder.
