gymiv -> All email into a single mailbox (16.Oct.2012 6:49:35 PM)

Using Exchange 2007 or 2010 is it possible to move all sent and recieved email into a single mailbox? Preferably in a secondary database. The email would need to be kept for an undisclosed period of time. I need to be able to search the email and bring up all email sent and recieved to a single user. Or is there a way to store all sent and recieved emails into a sql database so they can be indexed and searched that way? Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Create a new mailbox on the new store for this purpose.

Open the properties of the mailbox store(s), click on the Maintenance tab and configure the Journal Recipient and select the mailbox you created.

Now all mail sent to users on those mailbox stores will now also be copied to your journalling user.

It seems like a peculiar way to archive all mail.

If you are interested then I can recommend you a third party tool also which has the ability to easily search the messages from its search option on the basis of "From" (sender's name) and 'To' (recipient's name) field. After that you can select them and then move to the desired PST or Live Exchange format, but you cannot move all the items to a single mailbox if they are having large size.
