How to secure PST files on Server
Posted on 2008-11-19
Small office with 2003 server and 11 clients, no exchange server. All clients use microsoft outlook 2003. I am somewhat new to 2003 server. (have more novell background) I have clients automatically backing up PST's to the server to a separate sub-folder named for each user, under one top folder named "mail_bkups".
Then we have tape and backups done via Internet. All works well, my only concern is that (and it is very low risk for this place, since I know really none of these users would most likely not be able to do the following) someone browsing the network drive s:\ shared would see the pst for another user and copy it to their computer or flash drive and then be able to see someone else's mail, etc.
I could rename top folder to something like "technical_bulletins" as a red herring or can i lock down each folder by user, except there are at least three people with server admin access (boss'es) so maybe a way to encrpty file before copied from client or after on client so no one can see pst date.
any suggestion or help is apprciated.
