Journaling messages to Enterprise Vault from Exchange Server or Office 365
As an alternative to Enterprise Vault Exchange Journal Archiving, you can use Enterprise Vault SMTP Archiving to store journaled messages from an Exchange Server. You can also use SMTP Archiving to store journaled messages from Office 365. For detailed instructions on how to configure Exchange Server or Office 365 to journal messages to Enterprise Vault, see the document, Setting up Exchange Server and Office 365 for Enterprise Vault SMTP Archiving.
If you plan to use SMTP Archiving to store journaled messages from an Exchange Server, then you do not have to set up Enterprise Vault Exchange Journal Archiving in addition to SMTP Archiving.
For SMTP Archiving, you can configure Exchange Server to journal messages to an SMTP address.
You can use either Exchange Database Journaling or Transport Rule Journaling to archive the mail of a subset of users in an Exchange database. Transport Rule Journaling requires an Exchange Enterprise CAL.
If you use Database Journaling, then you can configure Exchange to journal all users in a particular Exchange database to Enterprise Vault.
If you use Transport Rule Journaling, then you can create Exchange journal rules to select which users are journaled to Enterprise Vault.
Alternatively, if you use Exchange Database Journaling and want to archive the messages of selected mailboxes, you can move the mailboxes to databases that are set to journal to Enterprise Vault SMTP Archiving servers.
In SMTP Journaling, you can configure one or more routing addresses. To each routing address you can assign multiple archives. To optimize performance, the archives should be on different Enterprise Vault storage servers. Enterprise Vault automatically balances the load across the archives that are assigned to a routing address. You can use Exchange Transport Rule Journaling rules to send messages to the appropriate target routing address.
Note that SMTP Archiving does not support messages in Transport Neutral Encapsulation Format (TNEF), also known as Outlook Rich Text Format. Messages sent by Exchange Server to Enterprise Vault must be in HTML or plain text format.
