To create a PST from a mailbox, you can do:

1.- Configure this mail account in your Outlook, and the export it to a PST.

2.- Install Outlook in you Exchange Server and by Powershell, create an export to the PST ( Export-Mailbox -Identity mailbox -PstFolderPath c:\pst\pstname.pst).

See you

Thanks soson,

the second option is what i was looking for. few more doubts if you can clarify:
1.is it necessary to install outlook on exchange.i mean will it work if i can export then view on a pc where outlook is installed.
2.when i will export user mail box to pst,will the contents of the mailbox will get deleted or it will have no effect on mailbox.

I would recommend you to **** to fix all exchange database corruption & restore exchange database .EDB to .PST format and export EDB to PST with complete email metadata- to, cc, bcc, date, time, subject etc. See more information at: https://softcart.wordpress.com/edb-to-pst-****/

I would consider enabling the Archive feature in Exchange so older mail will be archived on seperate storage which is accessible through Outlook and OWA. PSTs can only be created or accessed via Outlook only.
