Mailbox Exports stuck in a Queued Status

Today I am exporting mail to PST so I can start consolidating my Exchange Servers and when running the New-MailboxExportRequest command you might find that the mailboxes just stay in a queued status without processing. You can check this by running the following command:

Get-MailboxExportRequest | Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics

To fix the problem above simply open up Services.msc and restart the Microsoft Exchange Replication Service, give it a few min and if you run the above command you will see the Percentage Completed Column start showing you info instead of 0%.

Hope it helps

    Nice, but doesn’t work.
    Any other ideas?
    I do see with the command you specified a list of queued requests waiting to be processed, but nothing happens, for days..
    Cheers mate.
