Export Timing and Status Updates

Overview

        There are three stages an export goes through during the export process, and two export exception statuses.
       
    The standard export stages are as follows: 
        1.  Queued:  
            The requested export has been queued for processing.  User will receive email notification.
        2. Processing:
            The requested export is being created.
        3. Ready:
            The requested export is now complete and available for download. User will receive notification if the notification flag was checked                         during the export process.

    The export exception statuses are as follows:
        * Contact Support:
            The system was unable to automatically complete the requested export. Both the user and support will receive notification.
        * Exceeds Size Limits:
            During processing, the system discovered that the export exceeded the 3.5 GB (20GB for files) export size limitation. The user will                             receive notification. The limit size will be bumped to 7GB or 30,000 messages if the account has 'Compliance Edition' enabled.
