hi

i am looking for a very cheap archive system. I would like to have the facility that anyone can log on and search for an e-mail in an archive.

I got quotes almost seven grand as they told me i must have an sql server etc.

I do have one but leave it soley for my database. Is there anything out there thats cheap. Doesnt have to be fancy at all and if i have to manually  every now and again do this as suposed to a sql server autmaitically doing this then fine.

thx in advance

How many users?
Seven Grand in what? Euros, Roubles, Zim Dollar, Aussie Dollars?

The cheapest one I know of is GFI Mail Archiver, but that still needs an SQL because of what it does. I don't know if it will work with SQL Express edition or not - you would have to ask GFI.

oh ok. It was quoted in pounds. They had a a4 page with things i needed. i can appreciate the SQL and realise that will bump up the cost. I have a windoows 2003 server standard edirion with SQL.

I will look into this GFI one. Would you suggest that they are a good company?

I have the GFI product on a couple of sites and it works very well - my financial services clients love it. The one I do stress is that does have SQL and is given its own box. It is high transactional like Exchange.

I have actually seen user's behaviour change after it has been in place a few months. They get used to it being there and being able to retrieve their email from the database quickly and the size of the production store actually goes down as the users are happier to delete things they don't need "now" because they can get it back. Once something has been dealt with it can be deleted.
