Anyone use M+Archiving from Messaging Architects and know the ballpark range of cost per mailbox?  I have an appt to discuss this with their sales folks but it sure would be nice going in about what it's going to cost us per Groupwise or Exchange mailbox.  We are in the process of a migration and knowing numbers early in the process is essential for our budgeting process.

I have not found a price list anywhere on the web as of yet.

I've worked extensively with this solution.  In fact outside of the MA prof. services, I am the only consultant to complete a very large migration using their tools and processes and they are top notch.  The best part about the MA solution is that you DO NOT have a throw-away utility when you are done with the migration as you will with Quest.  You can immediately (depending upon your licensing purchase) go right into archiving your Exchange system with the M+Archive product for Exchange.  

You have complete control as to how much data you take away from GroupWise and put into Exchange.  The Quest product versions I've used on several migrations didn't let me choose how much...the whole mailbox or nothing.  If you decide not to migrate, M+Archive is one of the top two archiving/compliance/eDiscovery solutions for GroupWise.

The last project I completed involved 5,500 accounts of which 4,200 were migrated.  The next project (already started) will be about 2,200.

Typically MA doesn't post pricing.  My company is an MA partner.  However, I am not sure how you will contact me away from EE to discuss.  I think my email is in my EE profile.

That's good to hear about the product.  Sad to hear about the pricing.  In my experience, when you have to pry pricing information out of a software company it means that the cost is so much that they don't want to post it out of fears of scaring people off.  They would prefer to get you in and give you the "sales pitch" and sell you on the product so that the high price is easier to stomach.  If I worked for a for profit-organization, with deep pockets I wouldn't care.  But this is a small private college, and unless the price is something we can work with, then we won't be able to be a customer.
