New-MailboxExportRequest - This cmdlet is used to export all or some data from a mailbox or online archive mailbox to a PST file. There"s no limitation to how many export requests you can create for a given mailbox, but note that a unique name only will be created for the first 10 requests. It should be rare you need to create more than 10 requests for a single mailbox. The cmdlet checks for duplication of items, so you will not end up with duplicates in the PST file even though you create multiple requests for one mailbox or online archive mailbox. When creating a new export request you can specify things such as included or excluded folders, whether dumpster should be exported, what MRS server to use and so on.

> ......MY USER HAS 93 (YES, 93) PST FILES. It's 4am, i'm in the middle of a horrible migration and would like to import this guy's PST into his target mailbox. However, due to above statement, i can only import the first ten within one script.

Does anyone know of a way to bypass the 10 item limit per user? ....to say, 93????

Thanks

I believe you need to take a deep breath, get a cup of coffee, and reconsider.
New-MailboxExportRequest is for exporting email out of a mailbox into PST files. You want to import data from PST files to the mailbox.

The limitation appears to be on the ability to multi-thread. You should be able to import all 93 PST's, but you can't do more than 10 at a time. You'll just have to do them in batches.
