Question: Archive mailbox from Exchange 2007

Hi All

I would like to archive old users' mailbox from our exchange 2007 mailbox database. The users had left company and they may not come back. So I need to archive their mailbox and burn it into DVD media.

I know there is a way to get this done that is "export mailbox to pst" file. But I have few questions as below if someone can confirm it to me:

* What's the difference archive mailbox & export mailbox? For my unstanding, archive means export+delete, right?
* if I choose export method, So, I export the mailbox from exchange, and delete this user's mailbox ?
* is there a way to archive mailbox instead of export+delete in server side?
