IAdmExportExchangeMailboxOps

The IAdmExportExchangeMailboxOps interface provides methods for exporting Exchange mailboxes.

Inheritance: The IAdmExportExchangeMailboxOps interface inherits from the IDispatch interface.

Note

To export mailboxes, the account Adaxes uses to manage the AD domain where the mailbox is located must be assigned to the Mailbox Import Export role in Exchange.

Methods

Details

CreateMailboxExportRequest()

Creates a request for exporting a user’s Exchange mailbox to a Personal Storage Table (PST) file.

String CreateMailboxExportRequest(String filePath, 
                                  Int32 badItemLimit, 
                                  Int32 largeItemLimit)

Parameters

  • filePath - Specifies the full UNC path to the PST file that will contain the mailbox data (e.g. \\SERVER\Backups\JSmith.pst).
  • badItemLimit - Specifies the maximum number of bad items that are allowed before the request fails. A bad item is a corrupt item in the mailbox that can’t be exported to the PST file. Use 0 to not skip bad items. The valid input range for this parameter is from 0 through 2147483647.
  • largeItemLimit - Specifies the number of large items to skip if the request encounters such items in the mailbox. A large item is a message in the mailbox that exceeds the maximum allowed message size. Use 0 to not skip any large items.

Return value

The method returns a request ID that can be used to track the mailbox export progress.

Examples

The following code sample initiates mailbox export and outputs the status of the operation after 30 seconds.
