Fix Exchange 2007 Export-Mailbox error “ID no: 00000000-0000-00000000, error code: -1056749164”

While trying to export a mailbox to a pst file (Export-Mailbox -Identity yuri.dejager -PSTFolderPath E:\yuri.dejager.pst -BadItemLimit 65000 -ExcludeFolders “\Deleted Items”) I received the following error:

MAPI or an unspecified service provider.
ID no: 00000000-0000-00000000, error code: -1056749164
At line:1 char:15

Thanks to a Technet forum thread I quickly found it to be a permission problem. The following command fixed things:

Add-mailboxpermission -identity yuri.dejager -accessrights fullaccess -user <user which executes the Export-Mailbox command>

You, of course, need to have permission to successfully execute this command =)
