Fixing the PST Problem with Exchange 2010
Exchange 2010 offers some additional help for PST files in the form of a new Archive Mailbox. Archive Mailbox is an actual Exchange mailbox that is licensed, exists in the same Exchange database, and appears in Outlook alongside the primary mailbox. The seamless integration of Archive Mailbox with Exchange is done very nicely, and this will no doubt increase its acceptance.
Email content that exists in offline PST files is imported into the Archive Mailbox via a new PST archive tool that comes with Exchange 2010. The PST Import tool is basic in its initial release, but gets the job done. I recommend you allow time to manually organize PST files first because the PST Archive tool does not include a crawler to go out and find PSTs.
The advantage of moving PST data into the Archive Mailbox is to unclog your file share and desktops. Email content in the Archive Mailbox is centrally managed, protected, and searchable. This eliminates the risk of losing email content in existing PSTs.
If your organization is struggling with PST file overload--as many are--Exchange 2010's Archive Mailbox will be a big help. ... Bob Spurzem
On April 15, 2009, Microsoft announced that Exchange 2010 will have built-in support for archiving. Though Microsoft has been slow to reveal details about the new offering, its announcement is shaking the archiving market and the adjacent markets for e-discovery and compliance. In this webcast, David Ferris cuts through the confusion about E2010 and explains what the product's archiving features do, what they don't do, and how the technology is likely to evolve. A Q&A session gives attendees the opportunity to ask questions.
