Hey everyone,

My client wants me to search for sent e-mails to a particular address from August 2010 to present.

I don't want to open each user's mailbox (150 users) and do a search on their sent items. What a PITA.

Is there any software that will allow me to do this globally? As in, search everyone's sent items folders simultaneously?

Thanks so much,

I found the program MailRetriever, which looks like it will work, but I have to take exchange offline to use it.

Any other programs like it that will allow me to search while exchange is online?
