Search Exporter

The Archive Manager Search Exporter works in conjunction with Archive Manager to allow for the offline rendering of search results.

The results are stored as HTML, MIME, PST or XML format (together with any attachments). They can be accessed without the need to be online or burned to a CD and distributed to people who are not Archive Manager users. If you export to the HTML format, comments are also exported.

This tool is very useful during a legal discovery, when items must be submitted to the court in a format that can be accessed and preserved by the court (in other words, that can be used as evidence).

Prerequisites

The following requirements apply to the workstation where the Search Exporter will be installed:

Installing and running the Search Exporter

Install the Search Exporter on the PC of the person who will use the tool (normally the system administrator).

To install the tool, go to the Download Tools page of the Administration Web Site and click the Search Exporter link. Or, run the EmailExport.msi file located on the Archive Manager Reseller and Customer Portal site. Follow the prompts to install the application on the PC.

Before running the Search Exporter, you need to ensure that the Archive Manager security roles that will use the application have permissions to use it.

Administrators: Perform the following steps to ensure that the appropriate permissions are set to run the Search Exporter.

1
Go to the Archive Manager Website by clicking Administration at the top right of the Archive Manager application.
2
Select Security Roles to obtain a list of all roles in the system.
3
Click Edit for the role that you want to edit.
4
Ensure that the Export Email security action has been added to the role.

Depending upon how the Archive Manager Search Exporter application will be used in your organization, an additional security action may need to be selected. Typically, the tool is used only by administrators or other users with special permissions who need to export data from the Archive Manager application. If you need to search email across all mailboxes in the enterprise, you need to make sure that the security role has the following security action selected:
