Export Mailbox to PST with Powershell from Exchange 2007

Ever need to export a PST from your Exchange 2007 server? We needed to when it came to migrating to Office 365. There are always times you need backups and so this was a fast way to export PSTs. Please note, if you are running Exchange 2007 on a 64bit server, you will have to connect with a 32bit machine. Unfortunately the export tool is only supported by the 32bit Exchange Management tools.
