Outlook 2007 / Exchange 2003 legal discovery search
Posted on 2013-09-28
One of my clients needs a deep discovery of all the accounts on a SBS2003 server as well as many PST files. I have a list of keywords to search for. I need to provide this by Monday.
I built a Win 7 64bit virtual machine to help, but this seems like a monumental task. I am looking for some advise on how to do this.
My game plan thus far will be to log into the wkstn with the domain admin account and add users to the profile and PSTs as well, and do a search All Mail Items.
Some problems with this:
The searches do not seem to work right. I search for "(keyword1) OR (keyword2)" and I don't get a lot of hits. Keyword1 alone gives me a ton, and keyword2 also does. PLUS, I also have to filter out "attorney/client privileges" emails..... !!!
This is very convoluted. How to I present them to the lawyer? Copying them as a group - drag and drop style seems ridiculous.
There must be some kind of tool to do this or some syntax guide to make my searches reliable.
Thank you for your thoughts and ideas.
