foolproof retention... you can delete undeletable messages if you are clever!
Posted on 2006-04-05
Looking for 100% message retention forever technique, or until technology provides a practical answer to regulatory storage requirments.
I am aware of setting retention limits. I am aware of tombstoning those messages the user 'permanantly' deleted. I am only awaware of dumpsteralwayson and using OWA to reveal the retained messages, (which sound like weak methods.)
can you advise a way to force them to stay in deleted items forever?
can you advise a workaround to the fact that revealing retained deleted messages in OLK and OWA both offer a way to purge them forever, which I don't want to have happen.
Am I better off leaving it to a third party utility. GFI ME includes a log all messages (and not include attachements if desired) to a SQL server, have put this online experimentally in a lab setting and I like it. Unfortunately I prefer to keep retained messages in exchange and viewable with complete header stamps and stuff.
