Installing the post processing plugin for searching by recipients

 

Enhance your ArchiveWeb search by a new search option. Besides Subject and From text boxes in the Exchange Archive search a brand new searching option can be added to the search query – To field. In this way user can search for items sent to specific recipient.

To enable the above mentioned searching by recipients, a post processing plugin must be installed. This plugin indexes mail recipients.

To install the “Recipients” post processing plugin:

1.Run the Archive Manager for Exchange Enterprise Manager from Start\ Programs\ Metalogix \ MAM4Exchange \ Enterprise Manager or run it from C:\Program Files\ Metalogix\ MAM4Exchange\ Applications\ EnterpriseManager\ PamEnterpriseMan).

2.Switch to the Post Processing tab in the Manager view.

3.Right-click inside the left pane of the window and from the context menu select New plugin.

4.Installed plugins will be loaded in the Add Plugin pop-up window. Select the PostProcessRecipients plugin in the drop-down box and click Add.

When a new plugin is added onto the Post Processing tab, there are no mailboxes specified for it by default. The user needs to specify the mailboxes as well as the bookmark date (if necessary). For further information see the section “How to configure a plugin”.

NOTE: If no mailboxes are selected then post processing will not process any archived emails and attachments.

Extending Search History

 

The Search History lists last 10 search results by default. To change this number you have to modify the PamSearch.exe.config file located on MAMSearch folder (for example: C:\Program Files\Metalogix\MAMSearch).

There's a hidden key "maxcount" that can be set in PamSearch.exe.config to control the number of search history items. Value for this key can be any number in range between 1 and 2147483647. NOTE: When this key is missing from PamSearch.exe.config, the default value 10 is used.

To be able to set value for "maxcount" key the PamSearch.exe.config has to be modified by:

 

·adding new section name (if it does not exist) into <configSections> as follows:

    <section name="SearchHistory" type="System.Configuration.NameValueFileSectionHandler,System, Version=1.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" />

 

·creating new "SearchHistory" section (if it does not exist) as follows:

  <SearchHistory>

    <add key="maxcount" value="2" />

  </SearchHistory>

The value="2" indicates that 2 search history entries will be displayed

Please note that after changing the PamSearch.exe.config file you have to restart the MAMSearch service to affect the changes.

 

 

Example of PamSearch.exe.config

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<configuration>

  <configSections>

      .

      .

.

    <section name="SearchHistory" type="System.Configuration.NameValueFileSectionHandler,System, Version=1.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" />

  </configSections>

  <SearchHistory>

    <add key="maxcount" value="2" />

  </SearchHistory>

      .

</configuration>

 

 

Search History Clean Up

 

Search History cache (default path: "C:\Program Files (x86) \ Metalogix \ MAMSearch \ SearchCache \ <userSID>\") is periodically cleaned from old entries.

There is a hidden key “timelimit” that can be set in PamSearch.exe.config to manage the cleaning process. Its value defines the maximum time for which the search results (*.sqlite files) are stored in SearchCache folder. All older search results are removed from the disk.

Value for this key can be any valid TimeSpan string.

NOTE: When this key is missing from PamSearch.exe.config, the default value 1 day is used, which means history entries older than 1 day will be deleted.

 

To change this value you have to modify the PamSearch.exe.config file located on MAMSearch folder (default path: "c:\Program Files (x86)\Metalogix\MAMSearch\PAMSearch.exe.config").

 

To be able to set value for “timelimit” key the PamSearch.exe.config has to be modified by:

 

·adding  a new section name (if it does not exist) into <configSections> as follows:
<section name="SearchHistory" type="System.Configuration.NameValueFileSectionHandler,System, Version=1.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" />

·creating a new “SearchHistory” section (if it does not exist) as follows:
<SearchHistory>

    <add key="timelimit" value="365.23:59:59" />

</SearchHistory>

 

The value=”365.23:59:59” indicates that the search history entries will be stored for 365 days, 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds.

Please note that after changing the PamSearch.exe.config file you have to restart the MAMSearch service to affect the changes.
