Exchange attachments

We have a requirement to automatically save emails to certain mailboxes to disk. Is this possible through exchange 2010 / 2013 without a 3rd part add in?

You could enable Exchange Journaling for required users where all incoming and outgoing emails will be copied to a different mailbox.  You could have your journal mailboxes on different drives than the database.

Option 2 would be to export mailbox to PST on regular intervals.

I need the physical attachments on a hard disk. Not a copy of the email. Just noticed I didn't mention that in the original question.

What you need is a third party archiving system.  We are using Symantec Enterprise Vault where we archive mailboxes and mailboxes can then be accessed via a web browser.  All attachments are saved to a file system.  If needed, archives can be restored in Exchange or exported to PST files as well as the flexibility to grant other users access to the various archived mailboxes.

If you don't mind me asking, what is this requirement for?  Are you trying to automate processes (i.e. invoices)?

just trying to import data into a database to save people typing it in manually.

we can get upward of 400 of these emails with attachments a day with roughly 100 columns in them so it is quite time consuming.

journaling mailbox is the best option.
