I have recently (today in fact) installed a SBS2003 server for a new\nclient who has four users in the office. After importing mail from three\nof the four users the Exchange database is - get ready - 3.4GB. The\nfinal user will likely increase that size by about 1.0-1.5GB. Mail goes\nback to around 2001, all needs to be kept, and there is a LOT of\nattachments as you can imagine.\n\nExchange Enterprise is just an outrageous concept for four users, but\nI'm afraid that within 24-36 months the database is going to hit that\n16GB mark. What I would like to do is archive messages into a new, non-\nExchange database. I've seen a couple of products that do this, and some\nleave a "ghost message" in Exchange (that is obviously much smaller) so\nthe users can easily and seamlessly retrieve them.\n\nAnother option would be a way to archive only attachments into\npotentially a new database (non-Exchange) or some other storage, but\nmaintain the link between the original message and the attachment for\nease of retrieval.\n\nDoes anyone know anything about products that can provide this type of\nfunction? These are small office users, so I'm really interested in\nproducts that are as seamless as possible and they need to be relatively\nhands-off management as well.\n\nthanks!
