Ive been told of a company which has some type of exchange archiving tool, that archives all emails to an external store after 3 months, however keeps the skeleton of the email in the mailbox. (details of the email, and first few lines of text in the body). When the user wants the email he/she clicks on the email and it is fetched from the external store and puts it back into the Mailbox. So in effect the mailbox can be several Gb, but only a few hundred Mb in actual size.
My ideal solution would be to install a client on a local PC and point it to a local file server. Meaning nothing needs installing on our corprate server, which is a real pain to get signed off!!!
I have no idea what the software is called, or any details of if it installs on the client or exchange server.
Any pointers would be great! Thanks in advance!
