Hello.  I am the System Administrator for an organization that has over 100 users.  We are looking for a solution that would help reduce the size of the Exchange databases and allow us an easier way to recover email that is accidentally  (or purposely) deleted.  In my searches I found Sunbelt Software's Exchange Archiver, but have not found anyone yet who has implemented the software.  Does anyone have an experience with this and can give me some advice?  Thank you.

I would also love to know about the same topic.
I know GFI Mail Archiver can archive to NTFS, which would be perfect for us since we don't have a MsSQL database in place, but at the same time I would like to know if there are other archivers that might be better for the money or even cheaper.
I would love to hear what others are doing to accomplish email archive.

I'm in the middle of researching Exchange archiving products currently.  WindowsITPro magazine recently published a article with a table of about two dozen archiving products, see:  http://www.windowsitpro.com/MicrosoftExchangeOutlook/Article/ArticleID/97738/MicrosoftExchangeOutlook_97738.html
 
Sunbelt Exchange Archiver looks promising, but I have yet to find anyone using it.  SEA replaces the messages in a mailbox with shortcuts, making archiving transparent to the end-users.  Based on the size of your environment, SEA can use SQL Express for storing the links to the archived items.  The messages are stored on a variety of media using a proprietary hierarchical storage manager (HSM).
 
I contacted the company for a trial download, since my company requires in-house testing before making any purchase.  Sunbelt does not offer a trial of SEA, just an online demo.  Unless you buy from a reseller, Sunbelt also requires that you purchase telephone install support ($495) when you buy the software.

Some of the solutions can be quite expensive.
However, I did find something interesting.
These archive solutions won't increase performance since they don't reduce item count.

So, having that in mind, maybe a solution that adds a stub at the end (when the email starts being archived) so the user has a link to the archived emails, and not several stubs.
