The columns in the .csv logging file are not lined up correctly when you perform a discovery search on a mailbox in an Exchange Server 2010 environment

SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario:
  • In a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environment, you perform a discovery search on a mailbox.
  • The mailbox contains an email message that has special delimiter characters in the subject line. For example, the subject line contains commas, quotation marks, carriage return line feeds (CRLFs), or spaces. 
  • You enable the Full Logging feature to log the search results to a comma-separated value (.csv) file.
  • You access the search results folder in the discovery mailbox, and then you open the .csv file to view the search results.
In this scenario, the columns in the .csv file are lined up incorrectly. For example, the subject column only contains a part of the subject line, the other parts are shifted to the next columns incorrectly.
CAUSE
This issue occurs because the report logging does not correctly handle a subject line that contains special delimiter characters.
