For each mailbox, please proceed as follows:

  • Unless the mailbox of the current user is to be archived into his or her own user archive, log on to MailStore Client as MailStore administrator. Only an administrator can archive emails for other users.
  • 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 Single Mailbox.

  • 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, enter the Windows login name of the user whose emails are to be archived (e.g. barbara.ross@example.local or barbara.ross@example.com).
    Please note: Alternatively, any user with the appropriate access permissions for the mailbox to be archived can be specified. In this case, it is imperative that this mailbox is specified under Mailbox (see below).
  • Under Password, enter the user's password.
  • The field Mailbox must be left blank if a user, whose Windows login name and password is being used, wants to archive his own mailbox. Otherwise, the primary email address of the user whose mailbox you want to archive has to be entered here.
  • Click on Test to verify that MailStore can access the mailbox.
  • Click on Next.
  • 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).

    Important notice: Did you specify IMAP as the protocol and have also defined a deletion rule? If so, folders containing no emails, such as Tasks or Contacts have to be added to the list of excluded folders manually. This is the only way to avoid these folders being archived and deleted according to the deletion rule specified. Please read more in chapter Archiving Specific Folders.

  • Click on Next to continue.
  • If logged on to MailStore Server as MailStore administrator, the Target Archive can be specified. Select the archive of the user for whom the selected mailbox is to be archived. If the user does not exist yet, click on Create a New User.

  • 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, if desired, can be run immediately or automatically.
