Message Archiving only specific users?

Hello all,

Is there anyway to use the Archiving feature of the Enterprise Plug-in to archive conversations for only specific users? Lets say I’‘m only interested in retaining Bob’‘s messages. I want to archive messages Bob sends as well as any messages sent to Bob, but I don’'t want to archive messages from John to Mary.

Is there anyway to accomplish this?



Archiving is an all or nothing feature.

That being said, you could query the database directly for this information…something like:

SELECT * from entMessageArchive where fromJID like ‘’%bob%’’ OR toJID like ‘’%bob%’’ ;

I suspected as much. Getting only “bob”’‘s data out isn’'t a problem, but legal wanted the ability to record only certain users.

Thanks anyway kevinw,
