Search exchange for emails containing specific words

Tags:
Microsoft Exchange
Hi all - Life is very interesting and now we need to search our entire email system for all occurrences of some specific words (yes due to litigation) - I really don't know the best way to locate these emails, but we need to be able to locate them, copy them into a pst and provide them to our lawyer. We also need to document and prove we have done our best to locate all these emails. We are running Exchange 2003 if it helps. Let me know if you need more information. Any and all assistance is appreciated. Thanks! Lirria

Hi Lirra,

I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that you can do a search in the Exchange Systems Manager for that. The bad news is the if the indexing isn’t turned on, you’ll never find it. Here’s the article from Microsoft as to how to set it up. Good luck!
