Exchange Security

By mgosselin ·
We're a new company, with no IT folks. So, of course, they ask the youngest guy in the company to run the IT department.

We had someone install an Exchange Server on our network and it seems to work just fine, except for the fact that it allows users to delete their emails. We are a very sensitive business and we need to make sure that we keep records of all emails.

Is there a way to set up an auto-archiver for all emails (in and out); or is there a way to set up permissions on the folders so that the end users cannot delete the files?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thank You

Michael Gosselin

every user is the owner of their mailbox, so they can they have full control on that.
So unless you change the permission to custom, or read or so and for all users you can not do much about it.

A much better idea is to enable the log option in exchange and periodically put those logs on cd (full login takes a LOT of space, so keep an eye on diskspace.)

I can only help you with exchange 5.5 100% on exchnage 2000 I need to research a little.

Let me know.

Leopold - thanks for your advice. I will try to set up the log feature in Exchange, and have it regularly backed up to disk (thus cleared from the system).
