Outlook Message Shared Database Exporting

I have a client that utilizes Office 365 with Outlook for their internal e-mail system.  They have a need to export specific messages to a shared database so others in the office can see communication related to a project process.  Ideally, I would like to know if anyone has any experience with a software plugin for Outlook that would allow an individual to upload an individual message into a database system so it can be indexed and searched from a separate interface in the future?  I am not looking for automated archival but more of an application that allows the ease of sharing project related communication directly from Outlook.

Why not use Shared mailbox? Or Groups? Or you have a need to have those messages read from something other than mail client?

The problem is that shared mailboxes have limitations on size and performance.  While they may work for a small period of time, they aren't extensible nor easily searchable.

The limit is 50GB, are you sure you need more than that? :)
Searching is just a matter of changing the Search Scope options in Outlook. Here's an article that explains how search works for shared mailboxes in details: http://blogs.technet.com/b/outlooking/archive/2014/04/28/understanding-search-scopes-in-microsoft-outlook.aspx
