Does anyone know, of those who have experience with Encase Enterprise, if the encase servlet has to be installed on the Exchange server, or Symantec's Vault, to allow email to be searched?

Sunny10, that depends on what email file you want to search. The Servlet has to be installed on any device to make a connection via the EE SAFE from your forensic workstation. Once the connection is made, the Servlet plays no real role.

Now, going back to your question. If you want to review email files on the Exchange server itself - then the answer is Yes. The only way to get to that server is by way of the Servlet. If you want to review emails in a local copy of an OST file on a workstation, then the answer is No...you don't need to install the Servlet on the Exchange server, but rather it does need to be installed on the WS you're going to access.

Also, keep in mind, most email files, like OSTs are compressed database files, so you'll have to "view the file structure" to actually get to the emails.

The simplest way to review email from the Exchange server is to have the Exchange Admin make you a PST copy of the specific email file you need and then review it on your forensic WS. Don't mess with a production server, especially in a big organization. You don't want to be the guy that brought down email for XYZ Corp.

Hope that points you in the right direction.
