Archive Email to .pst
Posted on 2011-09-08
The server that exchange is on has 200 GB of space for email. Currently the company is using 97 GB of that 200. The issue we had was that the mailstore got too large and halted the server. A new HD was installed and mailboxes were moved to a new store.
With that being said, i was asked to find a solution to reduce the size of mailbox on the exchange server. One option was to create a rule that said " any email older than 6 months send it too a .pst file". The .pst file resides on their staff folder which is on the NFS storage box.
Is there an easier way to go about this to reduce the size of the store on exchange but also to keep email with out having to delete mail.
Can the Archive feature point to the staff folder and keep all subfolder structure the same? The way i have it setup with the rule is that all email get's put in one folder.
Any suggestion is welcome,
