We have been using an open source product called mailarchiva. It runs on Linux or Windows but we have been running it on a virtualized Linux os. The only real issue we have had is when Exchange stops or needs to be rebooted we often have to restart mailarchiva (not so much of a problem with the newer version). I personally have investigated pricing on over a ½ dozen e-mail archiving software packages and they all want about 40% to 100% more for just the software than we have invested in our entire e-mail infrastructure.
