Folder Exclusions in EV 9.0.1 for Exchange 2007

Is there a way to exclude particular folders on a user by user basis from being archived by Enterprise Vault?

For example, let's say user Alice doesn't want to archive the folder "Brass Monkey" and user Bob doesn't want to archive the folder "Chrome Elephant", but all other folders of theirs should be archived normally.  How would you go about accomplishing this?

Thanks in advance,

Ethan

  Just substitute Junk

 

Just substitute Junk E-mail for your folder name.  For Outlook 2010 you will have to user EVPM until full functionality is available for the client.

HOW TO: How to prevent the "Junk E-mail" folder from being archived by Enterprise Vault (EV)


Solution


How to configure EV from archiving the "Junk-Email" Folder in Outlook depends on the EV Client Extensions version being used.


1. EV Full Client:

This can be configured via the Outlook application on the client machines.
 

 
  • Right-click on the junk mail folder in Outlook
  • Select properties
  • Select the EV tab
  • Change the settings so that this folder is not archived.
·
 

 
2. EV Lite client:
 

 
The only option here is to use Enterprise Vault Policy Manager (EVPM) to run an EVPM script to disable archiving for the junk e-mail folder .  
 

 
a) Create a initialization file. This should be a text file (an example of the content is included at the end of this document)
 
b) Include the Distinguished Names of all the mailboxes which require the archiving of the "Junk E-mail" folder disabled.
 
c) Save the text file in Unicode format with a .ini extension.
 
d) Run EVPM on the EV server:
 
  • Click on Start, Run
  • Type cmd and click on OK
  • Change to the EV installation folder.  e.g.  c:\program files\enterprise vault (by default)
  • Run the following command: evpm <exchange server name> <service mailbox alias> <name and location of .ini file>
· e.g. evpm myexchange EnterpriseVault-myexchange c:\program files\enterprise vault\junk.ini
 

 
Example .ini file:
 
[Directory]
 
DirectoryComputername = <evservername>
 
SiteName = <evsitename>
 

 
[Mailbox]
 
DistinguishedName = /o=organization/ou=mailboxou/cn=Recipients/cn=<Name>
 

 
[Folder]
 
Name = \Junk E-Mail
 
Filtername = DoNotArchive
 
OverrideArchiveLocks = true
 
Note: For some special folders created by Outlook you do not need to specify a path, you specify only the folder name without the leading backslash. These special folders are: Inbox, Outbox, SentItems, DeletedItems, Drafts, Calendar, Contacts, Journal, Notes, Tasks. These names work for all languages so, for example, you can specify 'Inbox' on a Japanese system. Additionally, the [Folder] part must be added for each folder specified in the script
