SBS 2011 / Exchange 2010 - Archiving

Does SBS 2011 come standard with the ability to use the Exchange 2010 Archive features ? I have heard if we purchase enterprise cals this will work on SBS 2011

Can somebody please clear this up for me.

My apologies, you do need the enterprise CAL's for archiving, see page 3 here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/4/5/C/45CD1DC6-9204-44DD-999B-24B50A9144B6/SBS%202011_Licensing_FAQ.pdf

SBS2011 does support archiving and as far as I was aware this is included with the SBS CaLS.

Just to confirm

Q. May I use the SBS 2011 CAL Suite to access the Enterprise functionality of Microsoft Exchange Server Enterprise server software?
A. You may use SBS 2011 CAL Suite instead of Exchange Server 2010 Standard CALs to access base functionalities in instances of Exchange Server 2010 Standard or Enterprise in the Windows Small Business 2011 domain. In addition to SBS 2011 CAL Suite, you must acquire Exchange Server 2010 Enterprise CALs to access the following Exchange Server Enterprise functionalities in the Windows Small Business 2011 domain: Custom Retention Policies; Personal Archive; Voicemail; Information Protection and Compliance; Cross Mailbox Search; Legal Hold; Advance Mobile Policies, and Per User/Distribution List Journaling.

When they refer to "Voicemail" they mean UM Role correct.

Thank you thus far

Currently this client has SBS 2003 and Outlook 2003 SP II

We are wanting to move/upgrade them to SBS 2011 with Enterprise CALS so they can do Archiving on Exchange 2010.

I understand from reading they require Outlook 2010 in-order to see the archive in the Outlook client.

What version of Office 2010 do they require - Office Professional 2010 or Office Professional Plus 2010 ?

Do MS offer the ability to simply upgrade the outlook client only (to reduce cost) then would then continue to use word/excel under 2007 office ?

From what I read if we leave Outlook on 2007 they will need to use 2010 OWA to view the archive as 2007 Outlook does not allow you to view the Archive..

Then I find this link

Does this mean I can keep them on Office Basic 2007 and they will see the archive Ok in Outlook 2007 ?

Can you please help im really confused and need help.

For the record they currently have Office Basic 2007 so I guess that is a no go, can you confirm.

From reading archive cannot be seen If using Office 2007 Basic even if it patched with Feb update.

Do you concur ?

I read that as the archive policies are not available, but the personal archive should be.

However, to be honest, I have never used the basic version in an Office Environment so I cannot confirm that it would be available.

Were only talking a 5 user firm with a bucket load of emails.  So I'm going to buy 5 Retail Outlook 2010 that will work fine for all features if I read that last link correctly.  And leave Word and Excel on 2007

Sound OK ?

Archiving really works best with outlook 2010.  MS has attempted to back port archive support into outlook 2007. First with an update in December that was buggy, the a bug fixed version in February that has it's own set of issues. Maybe in may...but for mow? Real world experience tells me to use outlook 2010 if you want stable archive support.
