We are currently evaluating the possibility of migrating old archive stores from GFI MailArchiver 5 to Symantec Enterprise Vault. As far as I can tell, it's not going to be a simple process, but we're determined to make it work. Has anyone had experience with this? Is it feasible at all for 30 users?
The best route would probably be to export all e-mails a user received (To:, CC;, and BCC:) to a PST and then import them into Enterprise Vault from there. That way the permissions would be correct. We'd likely see duplicates if they were archived and still exist in the user's current mailbox, but that we can live with. I haven't figured out if it's possible to export from GFI to anything but individual .eml files, so if anyone has experience, please speak up.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I wish I had more to report. Although we do plan on doing this in the future, it's probably at least 6 months away if not longer, so I haven't done any testing. If you do end up doing this procedure before I do, I'd appreciate any input that you have.
