My customer has several thousand emails that are saved in different locations in their network.

They want an automated method to perform a mass, bulk insert of these emails into one of their SQL tables.

I think that SQL should be able to do this; but I am not certain given these emails are saved all over their network.

My question is - is this possible using a SQL SSIS package?

If so, what is the best method to even get this process started?  Should I request they put all the emails in the same folder based on the to email address in an effort to save processing time on the SQL side (as in not having to cycle through all the emails searching for the to email address)?
