User Archive Feature in Exchange 2010

Hello,

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?

Thanks,
John


Now, how do I access the archive?

In outlook, if you scroll down to inbox... you cant see any mailbox with the name Archive User Name?

Once you enable archive mailbox along with the normal mailbox , it will show up in outlook. Can you check that in outlook web access?

An enterprise Exchange CAL is needed to allow archiving to work. In a test environment this worked correctly when I tested in OWA, however to my knowledge and I am not sure what the full limitation is off hand, but this cal is needed.  Also, just to point out one thing...SBS works best when you use the SBS console. A user should be created in the console, which will automatically create an email account. Once you have the Enterprise CAL, you can then enable archive in EMC.

Best of luck!
