Best method to archive messages in Exchange 2010

We have a single Exchange 2010 Enterprise server.  There is a requirement to archive any emails to and from one customer - (i.e. by sender/recipient domain) so that messages are duplicated in a tamper-proof location.  In other words, this must be a copy of all messages sent and received and must be read-only.

Is this possible within Exchange 2010 Enterprise?  If so, how?  I know that it's possible to set up an archive mailbox but this can be altered, emails deleted, etc.

If not, what third party utility can meet the requirement?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

You would have to journal the email, then use a third party tool to extract those messages in to a database. That would be something like GFI Mail Archiver (which uses SQL as its database).

I am pretty sure you would need Enterprise CALs for Exchange to do the journaling kind that you want to do as well. I think standard CALs only allow journaling of everything. Although for your scenario you might be ok as you would have to use Transport Rules to journal the email.

Thanks, it looks like one of third party tools is what we'll go for - probably GFI Mail Archiver or MailStore.
