User Archive Feature in Exchange 2010
Posted on 2012-04-04
I am trying to understand the user archive feature of Exchange 2010 so I created a test account to check it out. I am running Windows Small Business Server 2011 and it has Exchange 2010.
I went into the server and created a user. Then, I went into the Exchange Management Console and created an Exchange account for the user. After I created the user, I right-clicked on his account and enabled Archive. I made the default choice to create a local archive. When I look at the user properties I see that his mail store and his archive are all on the same mail store.
I went to my test Windows 7 and Office 2010 workstation and created a profile for my test user. I logged into the account and I can send and receive messages. But, I don't see my archive anywyere. How do I find my archive and what is the best way to use it? Is this how most people will use this archiving feature or should I have done something else?
Now, how do I access the archive?
