About using Enterprise Vault SMTP Archiving for Exchange Server journaling

You can archive Exchange journal mail using either of the following methods:

  • Using Enterprise Vault Exchange Journal Archiving. With this solution, Exchange sends journal mail to journal mailboxes that are hosted on Exchange Mailbox servers. Enterprise Vault Exchange Journaling tasks continually collect the journal data from the journal mailboxes and store it in Enterprise Vault journal archives.

  • Using Enterprise Vault SMTP Archiving. Exchange Server uses an Exchange Send Connector to send the journal mail direct to Enterprise Vault SMTP servers. Enterprise Vault archives the journal mail using Enterprise Vault SMTP Archiving. With this solution there is no need for the journal mail to go to a dedicated Exchange Server journal mailbox first. This can significantly reduce the configuration complexity and storage requirement on Exchange Servers.

This chapter describes how to configure Exchange Server to send journal mail direct to Enterprise Vault SMTP Archiving.

This document does not describe how to set up Enterprise Vault SMTP Archiving. The manual, Setting up SMTP Archiving, contains detailed instructions on how to configure this feature.
