MS Outlook - Is it really a requirement?

Hello. 

I am running EV11 CHF5.  Journal and SMTP journal archiving plus FSA.  No mailbox archiving.  Is MS Outlook required on the EV SMTP archiving task server? 

Regards,

Tmurray1

Hi Tmurray1,

Strictly for SMTP archiving it should not be required as the items come in EML format.  However, if you are archiving .MSG files with FSA then Outlook is required on the server to be able to index the MAPI properties of the file.

It's not required for SMTP archiving but it is highly recommended becasue it is requirement for PST export. Chances are some sort of the PST export will be perform by Admin or by end users via webapp.
