Automatically copy every email sent and received to a PST or file folder for legal reasons
Posted on 2010-09-01
My wife needs to ensure that she has a running archive of all emails sent and received, kind of like a corporate email archiving tool used for compliance but done locally on her computer. I'm guessing I could setup a rule that copies all email received to a PST and another for all emails sent. Obviously I lose any folder organization she currently has, which I actually would like to somehow keep if possible.
So, are there any cheap/free tools that could help backup this information, ensuring that even if the emails are deleted that is not synced to the backup? Basically, she needs to do this for legal reasons regarding problems she is having with her employer. She wants to ensure she has "everything" if needed. I'd even consider a GMAIL pull from exchange, if that works. Anything that will allow her to keep a copy of everything that she can take with her at any time is she needs to walk out the door.
