how to not archive RSS Feed

Hello,

I need you help, for storage place reasons we decided to exclude the rss feed from the archiving.

Unfortunately the message class of the feeds is ipm.post.rss and I don't know how to exclude it from the archiving.

I know how to add a new class but not how to specify that one shouldn't't be archived.

Could any one of you help me on that one.

We are using EV 8.0 SP4 for Microsoft exchange.

Thank you for your help

Add the message class to the properties of the Directory in the VAC (Exchange Message Classes).

Make sure it's not ticked on the Mailbox Archiving Policy (which it won't be by default after adding it at the directory level)

 

I'm 98.5% sure that's how it should work Smiley Happy

I would like to know if this

I would like to know if this works as  ipm.post* is the default and my understanding is if you enable it everything below that would be archived ..and ipm.post.rss is below that .

I suppose it would depend on if EV respects excluded sub-categories ?

It definitely works in my lab

step 1

Add IPM.Note.RSS to the Message Classes on the Directory properties in the VAC

step 2

Verify it's not ticked on the mailbox policy

step 3

Restart the archive task for good measure, and so that I can see this :

You can see it's excluding IPM.Note.RSS

Now I have two test messages, one is plain old IPM.Note, the other is IPM.Note.RSS.  I can see in the trace of the archiving task that the first message is processed and archived correctly.  The second one is not in the trace at all (that's because of the way that the Archiving task uses MAPI restrictions to get the list of possible candidates for archiving).

 

Hope that helps,

 

Oh and by the way - an end user will still be able to able manually archive IPM.Note.RSS if you allow the store in vault button in Outlook / Outlook Web Access... unless you implement the registry key to make the clients obey the server policies.

As Rob said, that's how we do

As Rob said, that's how we do it. By adding it in as a specific message class, and then not selecting it in the policy, EV will not automatically archive it.

Re: Add the message class to the

If a message class was checked before, and then I uncheck it. Will Enterprise Vault un-archive all those messages of the unchecked message class? 

 

ex. IPM.Note.RSS is checked. Then IPM.Note.RSS is unchecked months later. Will EV go through and delete the IMP.Note.RSS messages? Or do they stay, and EV will no longer archive any future items of that class? 

 

Thanks! 

Re: Add the message class to the

Hello,

tip: You should really open a new thread, even if you have a question related to old entries.

As for your question. Unchecking a messageclass does not automatically unarchive (or delete) already archived items. If you uncheck, you don't archive the class from then on.

Unarchive or delete is done differently.
