I work for a government agency and have an end user who wants to burn approximately five years worth of e-mail to a CD and make it readable to a team member who is also using GroupWise. There are some of the messages that have attachments that she would like to have read as well. Examples of the attachments are varied in format (i.e., MS Word, WordPerfect, shape files with ArcGIS).
My experience with Roxio (standard at the agency) has been that the data can be copied to CD but then is "read only" when opening it afterwards.
1) What is the best method when burning to CD?
2) Do the archived files need to be converting before burning? If so, would ASCI II be sufficient?
3) Should I have the end user strip the attachments from the archived data?
The platform is W2K on the desktops with Novell Netware as the server OS. The standard e-mail client is GroupWise.
