I want to archive my exchange 2007 message jouranl mailbox to file every time it grows too large, about every 6 months. The journal is currently 13GB. I have been successful exporting it to PST but not at deleting the email from exchange in the process. Running an export and deletecontent does not seem to work the way I thought it would. Is it possible to do this without stopping services and deleiting or is there a better way to achieve this and is there a simple application that can help us accomplish this at little cost? We have about 400 mailboxes.

Export-Mailbox -Identity MessageJournal -PSTFolderPath C:\MJ103108.PST -DeleteContent

I just realized that I probably do not have delete rights on this mailbox/storage group. Will update, should solve delete issue. Question about better ways to a poor mans archive software and solution still stands.

Hi,
As far as low priced Archvie Solutions are concerned, here is a list of some good ones, now you can have a look based upon your budget and take. http://msexchange.org/software/Email-Archive-&-Storage . Just that make sure that you do use an Archiving solution, it helps.
Also, to be able to run Export-Mailbox command successfully you will need the following:
  • Exchange Server Administrators role and local Administrators group for the source server and the target server
  • Full access to the source and target mailboxes
Have a look at:
Hope this helps. Let me know
Thanks
