Exchange 2010 Online Archive Support for Outlook 2007– Now Available

I have seen many people asking a very common question in forums and restricted news groups, “Is there any support available for Outlook 2007 clients to access Exchange 2010 online archive?” Answer to this was no but now Yes. It is available now.

Exchange team announced the support yesterday and the December 2010 cumulative update for Office 2007 family will add this feature in Outlook 2007 now.

The update can be downloaded from: Office 2007 Cumulative Update for December 2010

I am sure everyone knows the limitation but thought of reminding one more time. You need Exchange 2010 Enterprise CALs to avail the online archive mailbox feature. So it is very clear that if you are running exchange 2010 standard CALs.

    1. Hey Bharat,

      When I read through the licensing information page that you have linked I see that the table in Exchange 2010 Client Access Licenses (CALs) section clearly mentions No for Integrated Archive using Standard CALs. Is this something I have not understood yet? Or something changed recently. To the best of knowledge it did require Enterprise CALs but not sure about other complexities. I will be more than glad to learn about it if you can drop by and post a small note again.

    Just a correction – you need Enterprise CALs, not Enterprise Edition to use archiving features. The eCAL is an additive license, so you need standard CALs also.

    The only restriction on Ent Edition vs Standard Edition is number of mounted databases.
