Exchange archiving filters
An advanced filtering feature enables you to customize the way certain messages are processed by the archiving task. Messages can be filtered on a variety of attributes, such as sender, recipients, subject, message direction or custom MAPI properties added by a third party application. Using XML configuration files, you can define the required action for messages that meet the filter rules. For example, you may want messages from a certain domain to be given a different Retention Category and archived in a different archive.
The custom filtering feature is particularly useful if your enterprise adds custom MAPI properties to items, and you want to be able to search archived items using these custom properties. Using the XML configuration files, you can specify custom properties that are to be indexed by Enterprise Vault when the message is archived.
You define in the XML configuration files which properties are available in your search interface. If you have a proprietary search application, you can also define how the search options for these properties are displayed. Alternatively, Enterprise Vault Search lets you search on custom properties.
An API is also available to enable you to add custom property searching to proprietary archive search applications.
Custom filtering can be configured for particular types of Exchange Server archiving (mailbox, public folder or journal archiving). If required, custom filtering can be restricted to particular mailboxes.
How to configure custom filters and properties is described in the Setting up Exchange Server Archiving guide.
If you want a customized filter written for this interface, contact your Veritas solutions provider.
