About installing Enterprise Vault SMTP Archiving components
On each server that you want to perform SMTP Archiving you need to install at least the Enterprise Vault Services and the SMTP Archiving components.
See Installing and Configuring for the required software and settings for Enterprise Vault SMTP servers, and for detailed instructions on how to install, configure, and perform the initial set up of Enterprise Vault.
When the Enterprise Vault installation program installs the SMTP Archiving components, it installs an SMTP server. The SMTP server is implemented as a Windows service called Enterprise Vault SMTP service. This service is displayed in the Windows Services console, but not in the Enterprise Vault Administration Console.
After you have completed the initial set up of Enterprise Vault, you are ready to configure the SMTP Archiving feature as described in this guide.
If you are installing the Enterprise Vault SMTP components on an existing Enterprise Vault server, then you can either use existing vault stores and archives, or create ones specifically for the SMTP content. Enterprise Vault implements single-instance storage as permitted by the vault store configuration.
If you are using Enterprise Vault 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.
