This feature is great, and it definitely can come in handy. However, in many cases, you don't necessarily want to archive messages from everyone. For example, you might need to copy messages from only one mailbox or a select group of mailboxes.
If this would better suit your needs, you can create a separate mailbox store specifically for archiving. Then, you can move the mailboxes you wish to track into the new mailbox store.
To set up a new mailbox store and turn on archiving, follow these steps.
Keep in mind that archiving your users' messages without their knowledge can be unethical, and it's even illegal in some countries and industries. Before you set up something that could potentially get you in serious trouble, take the appropriate steps to ensure that you and your company are on solid legal ground.
