Other Saving Options

Export to Live Exchange: After PST export, I decided to do mailbox recovery on live Exchange Server. I selected one mailbox and right-clicked on it (see below).

I entered the login credentials and then clicked OK.

The recovered mailbox exported to live Exchange Server successfully.

To export multiple mailboxes:

Select the “Export to Live Exchange” option.

Enter login details.

In the Map Mailboxes window, the software shows mapping feature that maps the source mailbox to the correct destination mailbox. You can also change it by using the Edit option.

You can check the saving status.

Now you can check the preview.

Export to Office 365: Now I tested the Export to Office 365 option.

I selected the Outlook profile to export the repaired mailboxes to Office 365 mail accounts. Then, I entered the login credentials and clicked OK.

Microsoft Exchange Server is one of the most coveted and trustworthy servers. However, Exchange Server often experiences issues, like database corruption, which may occur due to hardware/software failure, human errors, and accidental shutdown, among others. In such a scenario, you can use backups or built-in tools, like EseUtil, to recover the database.

However, they may not be considered failsafe as there is a risk of data loss. Using a third-party tool, especially Stellar Repair for Exchange, is the best solution to keep mail communication up and running. This tool comes with a host of features that help you to extract the contents from a corrupted database and export it to PST and other formats or directly to a live Exchange Server. With a few clicks, you can fix the problem, thanks to its simple and user-friendly interface.
