Introduction to Mimosa Archive Mimosa Archive is a comprehensive software solution for Microsoft Exchange that Bloomsburg University first implemented in Fall 2006 that currently archives all messages within your mailbox for 2 years. The Mimosa Archive client gives you quick access to any message you ve received or sent within the past 2 years. It offers a quick search, an advanced search, and a browse feature. It allows you to view messages right within the client, to restore messages back to your mailbox, or to restore messages to a.pst (personal folder) file that can be accessed on any computer you have Microsoft Outlook installed, such as your office computer. 8/12/2011 Page 1
2 What to expect Messages will stay in regular Inbox folders for 60 days. You will also see them in your Mimosa Archive from the start as well. (The timestamp goes by last modified date when opened, read, etc.) o Calendar items will stay on your calendar for 1 year. After 60 days, look in Mimosa for messages. The various ways of finding messages are described in detail in this document. Every that comes into or is sent from your Exchange/Outlook account will be stored on the Mimosa Archive server. messages cannot be deleted from Mimosa. Per our current retention policy, will be retained two years. Any messages in your archives older than two years are deleted. o If you need to keep certain s longer than the two year retention policy permits, you may store copies locally on your C drive. To do this, you would need to create PST file(s). See detailed information on creating PST files on the Mimosa web support page in the document called Creation of PST Files. Why are we using this program? Reliable backup of messages. State mandate regarding retention. Webmail Archived messages in the Mimosa folder are available when using webmail at https://webmail.bloomu.edu/. See the webmail tutorial on the Mimosa web support page at 8/12/2011 Page 2

7 Advanced Search ~ *Yields Most Specific Results* Use the Advanced Search to fine tune your search: Click Advanced Search on the front page of Mimosa to expand advanced search fields. Search for a specific item based on a keyword, specific send/receive date, or an attachment contained by it. This is a very powerful and efficient feature as the messages and their content are fully indexed on the NearPoint server. There are several ways to do advanced searches. Searching by word(s) The example below shows how you would search for s with certain words in them. This example shows how to search for s with the word test in the subject. To search without specifying a keyword, you have to include an asterisk (*) in the Look For field. 8/12/2011 Page 7

Click Search. Results will appear below the search pane. Start a new search Click the Advanced Search link in the right side of the Search area. The screen will be expanded to show more options. There are all sorts of ways to search. Experiment to see which ways you like best! Search by name If you would like to find all from a certain person, simply type their last name in the From field (or use the Address Book feature). Open or restore messages See page 4 and 5 if you need assistance viewing and/or restoring messages to your mailbox. 8/12/2011 Page 8
9 Options The Options tab may be used to access the Task History page and your User Preferences. View Task History page provides status on restore jobs to either PST files or mailbox folders. You can also download the PST files that were generated by a restore operation from this page. User Preferences page provides the ability to fine-tune your personal customized settings in Mimosa. IMPORTANT! Note that in the current version of Mimosa, there is a setting under User Preferences on the Search & Browse tab which restricts the search period of a quick search to the past 6 months by default. To do a quick search for your entire 2 years of data, change this setting to None Specified. 8/12/2011 Page 9
10 Frequently Asked Questions How often does archiving occur? It happens continually, but takes up to four hours for a new message to show up in a browse and up to twelve hours to be completely indexed for a search. How long will items stay in my Mimosa archive? Two years, per the current retention policy. I need certain message(s) kept longer than that. What can I do? Create a PST file for very important messages.keep this on your hard drive (C drive). Save message(s) in.html or.msg format to a designated folder on your computer. Detailed instruction for both of these methods can be found on the Mimosa web support page in the section called Need to keep messages longer than the 2 year retention period. Does Mimosa also archive Calendar entries? Yes. To find those, In the Look For area (Adv. Search), click on the drop down arrow and choose Calendar. Who will have access to my archived information? Only you can view your archive information. System administrators can audit this, but only with the permission of HR, or some sort of legal action. If this does happen, an audit trail is kept as well. I have MANY copies of the same exact message when using the browse feature or looking at search results. What are these and how can I clear these from the view? Mimosa keeps track of all changes and it considers a message that s unread and the same message that s read a separate search result. To remove these from your view, within Mimosa go to Options, User Preferences, and on the Version History tab, under History and Deleted Items section, choose to Hide History. This should only show you one copy of each individual message. 8/12/2011 Page 10
