We have a need to search about 5 users mailboxes for certain words due to a lawsuit.  I can open their inbox and do a search but that does not help me when they have folders created not in the inbox.  Is there a program that allows an exchange admin to search many users mailbox stores for e-mails with certain word strings ?

thanks

Best is to use Exmerge. Run Exmerge on all these 5 mailboxes and extract the mails which has that specific word.
