Email Archive Migration: Plan for Stubbing

Archiving technology is evolving, and this means that sometimes customers move between solutions. The migrations aren't straightforward.

A major area of difficulty is email "stubbing"--where the archive solution removes much of the email in an Exchange Store and leaves behind a short pointer to the removed information. Before archived data can be migrated to a new archive server, email stubs must be reunited or reversed. Sometimes it is impractical to put the email back together because of the space constraints of Exchange. In other cases, the archive solution does not provide tools to perform the stub reversal.

Here are some relevant suggestions when considering a new email archive solution:

  • Make sure the email archive product or service has tools to reverse stubbing.
  • Make sure PST export tools are available to assist the migration process.
  • Consider the amount of archive data that will accumulate in the archive, say over five years, and calculate if there will be space on Exchange to reverse the stubs.
  • Ideally, find an email archive solution that keeps a complete copy of email and attachments in the archive so stub reversal is not required.
