Export Mailbox Data from Specific Date Range

Post by CTech » Aug 12, 2019 4:19 pm

Is it possible to export a group of mailboxes using a specific date range ( For example, export all email between September 2018 to June 2019)?
I've tried using the advanced find setting in Exchange Explorer, specifying a filter for receive date and another for sent date. It takes a really long time and there is no folder structure when exporting the results to PST.

I've also tried exporting the PST using the option to put a filter using the Outlook syntax of "received:>=9/1/18 AND received:<=5/1/19" and it doesn't look like the filter applied at all as the PST contains the full mailbox.

I also don't see how I can export multiple mailboxes at once. Is this not possible? Using Veeam for eDiscovery seems painful

Welcome to Veeam Forums, Ctech!

Export to PST is supported in two scenarios: it can be either a single mailbox or all mailboxes under a datastore mounted to Veeam Explorer - in bulk. And each of the options is possible with custom filters applied - Export to PST -> Apply filter option (like you set it to the specific date range). The folder structure is always preserved.

Please open a support case and share its ID in this thread, so that we could follow up the investigation.

Thanks!

Can you help me with the proper syntax of the filter to be used in the export PST option?

You can use the same syntax, as for regular Outlook. In my lab, I actually used a similar syntax from your example to export the last month data (received:>=7/1/19 AND received:<=8/12/19) and works perfectly. And this is why I'm recommending you to troubleshoot the issue together with our support engineers.
