Template:Archiving Exchange Multiple Mailboxes

Revision as of 09:02, 26 June 2015 by Bmeyn (talk | contribs)

Please proceed as follows:

  • Log on to MailStore Client as MailStore administrator.
  • Click on Archive Email.
  • From the Email Servers list in the Create Profile area of the window, select Microsoft Exchange to create a new archiving profile.
  • A wizard opens to assist in specifying the archiving settings.
  • Select Multiple Mailboxes.
    Please note: In order to be able to archive multiple mailboxes, the MailStore users along with their email addresses have to exist in the MailStore user management. If this is not the case, MailStore will offer to set up and execute the directory synchronization at this point. Once completed, the wizard will resume.
    Alternatively, you can cancel the wizard and create users manually as described the in chapter User Management.

  • Under Access via, select the protocol to be used to access the Exchange server. Whenever possible, HTTPS should be used.
    Please note: Depending on the protocol chosen there is the option to Ignore SSL Warnings. Generally, these warnings appear if an unofficial or self-signed certificate is used on the Exchange server.
  • Under Host, enter enter the name of your Exchange server.
    Please note: If it is a externally hosted mailbox you are about to archive and do not know the host name, you can find it out by using the MailStore Exchange Autodiscover Tool.
  • Under User Name and Password, enter the access data of the service account that has access to all mailboxes to be archived.
  • Click on Next to continue.

  • If needed, adjust the settings for the List of Folders to be Archived, the filter and the Deletion Rules. By default, no emails will be deleted from the mailbox. The Timeout value only has to be adjusted in specific cases (e.g. with very slow servers). Please keep in mind that these settings apply to all mailboxes to be archived, as specified in the next step.
  • Select the users whose mailboxes are to be archived.

    The following options are available:
    • All users with configured email address
      Choose this option to archive the mailboxes of all users who are set up, along with their email addresses, in MailStore's user management.
    • All users except the following
      Choose this option to exclude individual users (and thereby their Exchange mailboxes) from the archiving process, using the list of users below.
    • Only the following users
      Choose this option to include individual users (and thereby their Exchange mailboxes) in the archiving process, using the list of users below. Only the mailboxes of those users explicitly specified will be archived.
    • Synchronize with Directory Services before archiving
      If selected, the MailStore user list will be synchronized with the configured directory service before any archiving process is executed. This has the advantage that, for example, new employees will be created as MailStore users before archiving, so once the archiving process is executed, their Exchange mailbox is archived automatically as well. This option is especially recommended when the archiving process is to be executed automatically.
  • Click on Next.
  • In the last step, a name for the archiving profile can be specified. After clicking Finish, the archiving profile will be listed under Saved Profiles and can be run immediately or automatically, if desired.
