Hello Experts

i have an Exchange server 2010 SP1 with about 60 users and 200 GB data base
i want to have an automated archiving system to catch all incoming and outgoing emails from the site.
and doing so i can set a smaller email box sizes for the users.
i searched the web for a third party tools that do this, and i came across some posts saying that it can be done with an internal exchange Journaling email box.

can someone guide me on how to do this ?
or if you have a better suggestion on how to archive all site emails ?

your help would be appreciated.
thank you.

Journaling is built in to Exchange. However it will NOT extract content from the existing mailboxes. All it will do is catch new email as it passes through Exchange.

The usual method is to have journaling enabled in Exchange (in to a mailbox in its own database) then use a third party tool to manage that journal. If you don't then the mailbox gets very large.
Furthermore a third party tool should be able to take your old email and extract it in to its own database.

This is how to enable the journal mailbox:

It also includes links on enabling journaling.
