Preservation of Electronic Mail: NHPRC EMCAP Tool

In June 2009 the final report was published for the jount EMCAP program between The North Carolina State Archives, the Kentucky Department of Library and Archives, and the Pennsylvania State Archives. The main objective of the project was the development of preservation software to convert e-mail from its native format into the more stable XML format. During the course of developing the tool, the team expressed the desire that the EMCAP tool be able to ingest Microsoft Exchange personal storage table files (.pst). This documentation may assist those who are looking for strategies for archiving e-mail messages created in Microsoft Outlook.
