GFI Mail Archiver vs Enterprise Vault

Morning all, I have a question and am struggling to find the answer.

I have received a quote for symantec enterprise vault for 250 users to archive/retain email messages on exchange 2007 for 7 years (stored on a nas box).  That software quote was $25,000.  They are obviously proud of their product.  I was a little shocked at this price.

I am also looking at other solutions such as GFI mail archiver.

The only thing the client wants to do is retain any message that hits the exchange server for 7 years. End users would have full control over their mailbox and they could delete emails all day long...but they are still automatically retained on another device for 7 years.

Certainly this isn't hard to do, I know that exchange journaling comes into play...but how do I simply retain every email on another device for 7 years?

Thanks,

It depends what you want to use it for.  GFI Mail Archiver is basic archiving while EV can be used for integrated E-Disocvery and is used by paralegals, lawyers, HR for audit tracking and such.

If you want basic archiving GFI will work fine.  If you want a more integrated solution that plugs into Outlook, OWA, etc.. then Enterprise Vault is a better solution.
