Introduction:

The Event Import functionality in CA Data Protection (DataMinder) allows you to integrate with third-party email archives and file storage locations. In particular, Event Import can import, emails from; Microsoft Exchange mailboxes, Lotus Notes NSF files, Archive files such as PST and MSG files.

Background:

When importing Email events into CA Data Protection (DataMinder) you may wish to exclude certain Microsoft Exchange\Outlook message classes from the import job if they do not contain any pertinent information (for example; Meeting cancellations).

Environment:
Data Protection (DataMinder)
Instructions:

To exclude a message classs(es) from an import job you need to use the "Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern" parameter in the import configuration file (ie "import.exch.ini")

 

The "Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern" parameter has no default value. The syntax is:

 

Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern=<message class>

For example, a reviewer may want to exclude all faxes. In this case, the syntax would be:

 

Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern=IPM.*.Fax

A single import.ini file can include multiple instances of this parameter, with each instance specifying a different pattern.

 

Other typical exclusions are as follows:

 

Out-of-office templates:

Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern=IPM.Note.Rules.Oof.Template.Microsoft 

 

Meeting cancellations:

Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern=IPM.Schedule.Meeting.Canceled 

 

Responses to Meeting Requests:

Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern=IPM.Schedule.Meeting.Resp.* 

 

Message recall reports:

Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern=IPM.Recall.Report 

 

Reporting item status:

Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern=IPM.Report 

 

Email Read receipts:

Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern=IPM.Note.RN 

Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern=REPORT.IPM.Note.RN 

Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern=REPORT.IPM.Note.IPNRN 

 

Email Delivery Reports:

Email.MessageClassFilterExcludePattern=REPORT.IPM.Note.DR
