Seamless email archival / retrieval for Exchange
Posted on 2013-05-24
I have a customer with SBS 2003. Their mailstore keeps hitting the 75GB limit, and subsequently, we have to archive off loads of emails to PST files which is not ideal. They are not yet in a position to upgrade from SBS 2003.
What I need is an email archival solution, that requires NO end user interaction. I saw one years ago, but cannot remember what it was called.
What I need is for this archival solution to leave just the message headers in Exchange, and that when a user, using either Outlook, Outlook Web Access, smartphone or whatever, clicks to open an email, that email is retrieved from the archive.
Products such as GFI MailArchiver don't fit the bill as the user would have to search their archive, rather than just click on an email header.
Can anyone recommend a solution?
