There are two major email archiving systems that handle all users and keep email data from users who leave the company for as long as you are required to keep email data.  

GWAVA Retain
Netmail Archive

Both were designed for GroupWise and both support Exchange.  Retain supports a number of other user data platforms too such as social media, blackberry, facebook, etc. if your organization is required to keep that data archived too.

Both products capture email, calendar, tasks, notes, contact info/address books and maintain all of the metadata.

GroupWise has native archiving built into it via the GroupWise client.  It works but is proprietary and can become corrupted just like an Outlook PST.

Some companies I've worked with had me convert GroupWise messages into Outlook PST files for storing...not the best but it works.

Shameless plug:
Our company consults and sells, installs everything mentioned above.  We also teach company staff how to use as well as troubleshoot and fix the above products and technologies.

Hope that helps to at least start a conversation with you.

Thanks for the feedback.

Currently we do use Netmail Search too but the process is very lengthy and sort of convoluted.  I was wondering if there is a much simpler established process.

I did some more looking and found the Archive-To-Go product from Advancsys.  You can run a job with that software and process it into an Advancsys format and then use their interface to access it whenever needed.  I used it and their PST Creator product last year to process live GroupWise data as well as GroupWise client archives for a company that moved to O-365 but had no access to their old email data because the migration consultant didn't migrate any of it to the cloud for some reason.  I processed a PST for "live" and multiple PSTs for "archive", depending upon how much data each person had in their accounts.
