Hosted google apps email, imap downloads to outlook 2003 (mainly) and 2007. My .pst archive per year is increasing steadily from 1GB (2007) to 2GB (2008) to 3GB to 6GB.
I expect it to go well over 10GB per pst file in the next few years. Is there any good method for me to archive the pst files, and do english/chinese searches on the contents?
Currently what I'm doing is I load the pst files in outlook and leave it there. So I have a current year, last year, and last last year folder in outlook. And that's just one email account, I only have about 10 email accounts in my company but I can foresee it would be horrible to administer all of them.
I'm open to alternate commercial/opensourced software suggestions or running some kind of archival server on another machine, but the clients should optimally be still using some version of app based outlook.
