Exchange 2003-2007 Archiving

I am looking into email archiving for exchange.  Due to legal and other reasons (lazines),  we have to keep all emails for at least 7 years.
  I currently have Exchange 2003, but would like something that is compatible also with 2007 and the rumored future 2010 version.  
It will need compression, capibility of being seached by the user while keeping security in mind.
I was wondering if I could get suggestions on what would be one of hte best email archiving program  from a standpoint of experience.( Network System's Administrators) and not a sales standpoint.

Just have a look at it :-)
