What would be a recommended way to record every single email message a user gets separate from their own inbox, sent folder? For example, in a governing body, emails need to be retained for x amount of time. It has been honesty policy up to this point. I want to capture every email sent/recieved from the Board memeber accounts and the President. I know I can use the legal hold in Exchange 2010 - not sure how to configure but aware it is an option. I also understand I would be retaining every spam email and lunch notification and this file or mailbox would be tremendous. I want to capture say 5 years. Almost like a mailbox that would capture any sent or received items from 9 users mailboxes. Alternative? I thought about setting their Inbox and sent so that they couldnt delete. Would that be effective? The key is is that it could be archived. There is a possibility it would need to be searched on to provide documented transactions between parties and/or subjects.
