archving emails exchange 2003
Posted on 2011-03-03
we have an sbs 2003 server running exchange 2003. Now the mailboxes here are growing quite large now with about 5 years worh of emails.
Now we are elooking to archive the emais away to free space up on the boxes.
My idea was to simply create <user>_archive<year> mailboxes for each user and simply move all the emails across into here.
the user could then still access if need be.
However this seems like alot of work as there are now around 10 employees.
Is there a better way to do this?
what would the standard protocol for this be please
