Email Archiving #4

Hello All,

I've been tasked with coming up with a solution for archiving email
for regulatory purposes. I found two products that I really like: GFI
Mail Archiver and Message Soultion Enterprise Archiver. I really like
the Message Soultions product, bit they come in at roughtly three
times the price of GFI. There is one noticeable diference: Message
Solutions offers an Outlook plugin that is really nice, users dont
know and dont need to know if their mail is in the Information Store
or in an archive, whereas, GFI offers a web interface for users to
view and retrieve their archived mail.
Does anyone have expeirence with archiving mail (any war stories?) and
does anyone have any expierence with either of these products?

Thanks very much for your help!

Athena Archiver is an email archiving solution that supports disaster
recovery, business continuity, compliance, and legal support
features.  It has a number of unique features including a next
generation flash based web client, millions of company wide search
results returned in a second and dynamic drag and drop tagging of
messages allowing for easy management. It also has an Outlook plug-in
similar to the one you mentioned.  You can read about our solution on
our website http://www.athenaarchiver.com, however, our live online
demo http://demo.athenaarchiver.com speaks more to the amazing search
functionality of our system. When you log in, you can search and
retrieve over 500,000 messages from the Enron archive so that you can
see Athena Archiver in action on a true corporate mail archive.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi
Naxian buts heads with these guys every day. GFI is a low end product
and not the best on the market. Many of the solutions rely on the
journalling feature in Exchange and leave you stranded if exchange
goes down for any reason, plus journally is very resource hungry.

If no decsion has been made I sincerely recommend that you look at
naxian - www.naxian.co.za

Try looking at KVS Enterprise Vault now marketed by Symantec, works
very well on medium to large sites. It is a little costly though.

Howdy, I am running OL2000. I have imported my archive folders so they appear in the folder tree. I can scroll through the various archived folders with no trouble.

No matter how I search, nothing is found, this, despite the fact that hundreds of messages to her are in plain view.

Can't forward to an external email address...
We have a user that uses his external AOL account as well as his company email account. He has asked me to forward all company mail to his external AOL account. I figured I'd be able to just go into the delivery options on the "Exchange General" tab for his user profile and forward to the appropriate address. However, you cannot enter just any address in there, it forces you to select an address from the directory - of course his AOL address is not there. Is there an easy way to forward all mail from his internal account to an external account? I tried creating a rule on his Out...

I have created a simple Access database that our HR department will use to input demographic information on a new employee, as well as what software, access, etc. a new employee will need.

Can this be done? You can setup a report to based on your current record and email it using SendObject or using Outlook automation.

Well, i's possible to do what you want (mail a form to someone that's editable on the receiving end and runs code to send mail when done) but is not easy.

email addresses in memory

They said they didn't do anything different. The addresses are in the contact list but there is nothing in memory so you have to type the whole address in. Is this possible or can address in memory be deleted or removed?

Unlinking tracked emails in CRM 3.0
I find that once an email is linked to/tracked by CRM (Customer, Client, Activity) it can't be unlinked! only deleted.

Emails not leaving outbox
Hi all - I am having what seems to be a common problem, but all of the suggested fixes I found did not work. I have set up SQLServer to use MAPI to email notifications. I have Outlook 2000 installed and configured and working. The SQLServer notifications part isworking too. The only thing I can't figure out is the emails never leave the outbox until I start Outlook and click Send/Receive. Then they are all sent fine. I read some articles mentioning MAPISP32, which appears to be the culprit. From what I see it's supposed to spool emails that are in the Outlook outbox. I found after I ...

Hi. The problem is that for the most part, my users don't purge their junk on their own and it just keeps builing up and it is stating to take up way too much space on my exchange server.
