You need to use ExMerge and create an INI file and a batch file that runs hourly on the exchange server as a scheduled task.

Check this link to see the command line options of ExMerge:

I would just create a new mailbox store. Move the User's mailbox to that store. Go to the properties of that store and choose "Archive all messages....".

thanks for the replies...MrLonandB are you referring to a manual process? If so I was hoping to automate the process since I'm so busy during the day.

Why do Marketing keep bothering you?

Is your marketing department constantly asking for new email signature updates? Are they requesting a different design for every department? Do they need yet another banner added? Don’t let it get you down! There is an easy way to manage all of these requests...

Not manual at all. All of that users email will archive to a mailbox of your choosing. So regardless of what he deletes...you will have it. No manual intervention at all.

MrLonandB is right. This solution is fully automated and will catch all the messages. Just keep in mind that the size of the mailbox will reflect the message traffic this user has (incoming + outgoing).

If you are just wanted to do this for one user, create an additonal mailbox store on your Exchange Server. Move the User's mailbox from the store it is now in...to the new one you created. His will be the only mailbox in that store. Now right-click the new store you just created and go to "properties". In the "General" tab about halfway down...you will see: "Archive all messages...". Check that box and then "Browse" to the mailbox that you want to use as the archiving mailbox...possibly your own or another administrator or just whatever. Then Apply that.

Now all the mail that is sent to and from that mail store...will be archived to your mailbox. And of course, the only mail that will be archived is just from that one user...because his mailbox is the only one in the store.
