Im a notes guy but one of my clients went from Notes to Exchange and when configuring Outlook, I noticed all the mail is copied down to a PST and then deleted off of the server. I thought by default, email in exchange stayed on the server. It seems the powers at be didnt want to keep mail on the server because the exchange server is in the Far East and the users are in the US and they thought it would be faster this way. The problem I now see is that the mail files arent being backed up. Is there a way I can modify the clients or is it an option set on the exchange server which I have no access to? Its pretty much working like a pop account. Thanks in advance.
