Ediscovery-question on pulling mails from the .csv (exchange 2016) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    So before we begin i just want to say I'm not an exchangeperson so if my questioning is a bit fuzzy its because i don't know what I'm talking about(ish).

    When you do a search with eDiscovery you get a .PST and a .CSV and thats all good.

    But what i want to do after i get that file is to pull individual mail based on the .CSV.

    Example: I do a search and in the .CSV i find 9000 mails / rows and out of them I just need to pull 80 of them.
    To many to manually search for them in the .PST / mailbox so i need to either mark the mails in the CSV or delete all the rows i don't want, because it may as well be 90000 mails and I need to pull 500 of them.

    I've noticed a field that says "item documentID" that seems to be unique, is there a way to use that?

    I don't care if I need to run it through powershell, python or whatever way, I just want to be able to use the eDiscovery-feature and the .PST / .CSV you get from that as a base to pull the individual rows / mails from that.

The PST file can be converted to an XML object and worked with via PowerShell: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/010e3f4f-755b-4cb4-b574-69e5db6e3278/powershell-outlook-2010-converting-pst-to-xml?forum=winserverpowershell
