Hello,

i have setup an Exchange 2010 (without sp1 for the moment) and have activated "Online archive" for certain user account.

When doing that, I was not knowing that Exchange will apply some policy to mailbox and move automaticly mail from main box to archive box...

This is annoying for my user because most of them are using Outlook 2007 and not have access to online archive from Outlook.

Now I would like to disable the automatic policy for archiving and would like to set it to disable, thus my users can manually drop to archive the mails they want at the moment they want...

I have try on a fake account to disable archiving "on the fly", I was supposing that exchange will move archived mail to main box automaticly but it doesn't!
Instead of that, it disconnect the archive mailbox and let it like that.

So, I would like to find a process for disabling the automatic moving of mail to archive and find a clean process to restore mail from archive to main mailbox for the affected users.

Does anyone know something?

Thansk for help

Exchange archiving is just another mailbox for the user. Using Outlook 2010 or at least Ex with SP1 you should see the archiv mailbox in Outlook. Just drag/move the mails to the users inbox and disable archiving afterwards.
Remember that disabling the archiv will delete this mailbox!

Thanks for advice but I was knowing this procedure.
I was searching a way for doing it from Exchange server (if a way exist)

I also don't want to disable archiving since I want my user to use move themself their mail to archive when they want (and not when the policy decide...)

Maybe powershell "export-mailbox" command could do the job - but I've never tried...

The solution is probably not the best, but this is the only one available for the moment...
