Hi,

I have a CEO and staff that have been using Outlook 2003 Calendar as a way

to archive files and information. This is not something that Information

Systems planed, but this something that her staff started.

For example, say they have a new VP hire, and they want to review what was

discussed, 2 years ago in a meeting, they use Outlook to review it. Also,

they are making changes to files and saving them, as email attachments, tied

to certain dates.

I just learned about this, because it seems that someone auto archived the

Calendar and data is missing.

I want to know, if Microsoft has some way to take this data, including the

email, and attachments, and dump them in some other searchable format, so I

can get them away from using Calendar in this format.

Journal would be better for this... but they need ot disable archiving on it

too.

Microsoft doesn't have a way, but there are various utilities that will save

outlook items and attachments in other formats, such as PDF or HTML,

otherwise you can use Outlook's advanced find or windows or google's desktop

search.

See http://www.slipstick.com/addins/housekeeping.asp for archiving tools

and http://www.slipstick.com/addins/search.asp for additional search

tools.
