Hey guys,

Ive got an executive with a very large mailbox and would like to find the best solution for archiving his older items. Currently, we do not have any archiving solutions in place as we are a rather new organization.

Other than creating a PST for him to use in outlook for his archives, is there any other way built into exchange to setup archiving?

Thanks!

With 2007 you're either looking at creating a pst locally, allowing a larger inbox for this specific user or using software for email archiving.  Exchange 2010 has a built in option but with 2007 you need to purchase additional software.  I looked at this software for the same situation http://www.gfi.com/email-archiving-exchange

Honestly, we have found the Barracuda Archiver to work extremely well for this purpose. Our organization is required to maintain a copy of all email for 7 years.

This appliance stores a copy of every email ever received and stubs attachments. Basically it pulls the attachments off of the document and redirects the attachment in the email to the Barracuda Archiver.
