You may need to alter the mail database template.

Use a newer mail template for the mail in DB, that has the built in Archive feature.

Test on a copy, and use replace design with the newest mail template.


If this is NOT a standard mail template, that you may need to  create your own archiving agents.


I hope this helps !

If this is a regular mail template, and the archive settings are visible, then you just need to open the archive settings on the SERVER copy of the mail-in database, and change the settings to use server archive settings.  From Administrator help: Mail archiving and policies:

Client-based and server-based archiving
When you use policies to manage archiving, you use either server-based archiving or client-based archiving. In either case you can archive to a server. The terms server-based or client-based refer to where the archiving process occurs, either on a server or on the client's workstation. If you choose to archive on a server, you must create a program document to run the Compact server task. If you choose client-based archiving, however, the workstation must be running in order to archive documents. If archiving is scheduled at a time during which the workstation is not running, archiving will not occur. You can archive mail files to the following:
Server-based archiving -- Using this option, the mail server archives to the mail server itself, or to another server that you designate as the archive server.
Client-based archiving -- Using this option the individual workstations process mail file archiving. Depending on where the mail file resides, either on a mail server or on their individual workstations, mail is archived to the mail server, a designated server, or to their local workstations.

Also, on this same document is a link to: Creating a policy document

Is the question really on how to apply a user policy to a non-user mail file (i.e., mail-in database)?

Depends if it is a standard mail file... some actually configure a user for the mail file, i.e. sales@thisdomain.  But give the access to a group of people.  

otherwise, again, if it is a standard e-mail template, the archive settings should work, right?

For policy-based server archiving, it may not work. The way server-based archiving works is opaque. I *think* it uses the mailbox archive settings, but it could actually be using the policy settings, I haven't determined that.

Folks
We cant set things mixed here, issue of server based and client is clear, problem is how to assign policy of server archiving for mail-in account and database, that the mail-in document doesnt have tab for assigning a policy as the normal user.

Thanks

Don't assign it in the policy.  Instead, just manually apply arcchive settings to that mail file.  See if they keep (we're hoping it won't get overwritten by a random policy), and if so, if the settings are used by the compact -a server archiving command (again, it should do it).

Agreed.  Is this something you know how to do, Naser_d1?
