maybe what he wants is to archive HIS outbound mail? in that case, see 'off-line' use in Outlook help for how to add outbox (if possible) to off-line files which are saved to his local disk? does that help any? if you are talking about really backing up Exchange, search for how to's on this or get exchange module for BackupExec or ArcServe.

One way to archive all email would be to write a simple batch script that makes a copy of the private information store once a day. This should capture all outgoing as copies of sent messages are placed in the sent messages folder. Another way (albeit resource intensive) is to configure the message tracking service. This is not a solution, per se, but would allow tracking and reviewing of sent messages.

If destination is more important than content, enable logging on the smtp service. This will give a comprehensive view of all sending and recieving addresses, but no content. This can be combined with the message tracking service for a way to track them, but there really isn't an obvious way to archive all outgoing mail without third party tools.
