Archiving mails to CDR

hi guys,

For legal reason, we keep a copy of all mails to and from our office.

We used to work with mDaemon, which had a very easy function for this, and kept all mails in .msg files under an unencrypted folder on the harddisk. I put all those mails on a CD every 3 months to save HD space.

We recently switched to Exchange Server 2003. It also allows me to keep a copy of all mails, but the problem is: how can I export those mails to files which I can put on a CD...

any suggestions?

Thanks!!

oh, forgot to mention: I'm saving them in a public folder (which is only viewable by me). Best would be if I could export these mails as plain, unencrypted textfiles, which is very easy to find the mail (full-text search on CD)

greetz!

Export the messages to a PST file from an Outlook client.
This PST file can then be added to an OL profile to search for messages.

Unfortunately, EXMERGE cannot export a Public Folder to a PST file. You will have to add the PST file to the OL profile and then Drag/Drop of use Export from the File pulldown menu.

Be careful that you do not exceed the 2 GB limit for PST files.
