Powershell (Outlook 2010) - Converting PST to XML

Hey Guys,

Hoping for someone with good knowledge in powershell to explain how i should go about using the outlook comobject to either:

  • A) Convert a specific PST i.e. "c:\mail\test.pst" to XML or i'll even settle for CSV
  • B) Read the full PST and display the Raw Data
I'm just getting familiar with the following:

$ol = new-object -comobject "Outlook.Application"

so any help would be appreciated.

Cheers To

It would be good to hear if it proves interesting.
