Forced save of MS Communicator to Outlook folder

It's possible to have MS Office Communicator save conversations into a conversations folder in Outlook.  At least for OC 2007 and Outlook 2010.

That's great, but it's rather leisurely about saving.  I'd like to be able to force a save so that I can close the chat window.

That's what I'm looking for.  Either that or a way to speed up the save frequency (to say every minute like I can do with Word).

I can't find that there's any way to make this happen on MS or anywhere else, but that's what I'm looking for.

I don't want to do the save to file.  I'm already able to do that and it quickly gets out of control.

Klamerus,

You would need to install and configure an archiving server (and a SQL
server). Basically, you configure what to archive - archiving either globally or
user based. Once archiving is setup, OCS sends the Archiving Server IM
conversations plus a variety of other detail records (VOIP, etc).

The Archiving Server role is a separate role that you install either
using EE or SE. Archiving severs can also be clustered for high
availability in addition to SQL clustering.

The actual archiving is carried out on an independent server with the IM
conversations and call details being logged to SQL Server. The SQL
server can be co-located on the Archiving  server, or on a separate
server or fail-over cluster.

You can download the Archiving and CDR Server Deployment guide at:

I suppose you could write a server add-in to do this, but out of the
box, this is not possible.

Hope that helps,
Wellous

Klamerus,
I tried the method you advised and it works very fine !!
the Communicator is saving the converstation when you close the conv.window !!

Also the above solution is still valid if you don't want to save the covnerstation on outlook.

I really dont' know what you're talking about.

All I want is to force my OCS to do a save more frequently than whatever it's apparently doing and/or to be able to force it to save so I can close a conversation at will and keep the content.

There's no need for any server side components and actually no way anything on a server will help with this.

I also didn't advise any method.  I'm looking for a solution

I understand that this is yr issue >>>> I'd like to be able to force a save so that I can close the chat window.<<<<<

Actually it works very fine, i tried it myself and it works ...
Whenever you close the conversation window , It normally goes to your MS Outlook Conversation History Folder !! no need to force anything ...
if it's not working with you , then i believe you have to download the Hotfix from Microsoft site below :
