The Enterprise Vault Outlook Add-In provides Enterprise Vault user functionality to Outlook users. From within Outlook, users can archive items manually, and view, copy and delete archived items. Outlook users can also start Archive Explorer and Enterprise Vault Search, within Outlook, to access and manage items stored in archives.
Before users can send items to an archive from within their Outlook client, the Outlook Add-In must be installed on their computers. Install the Outlook Add-In on users' computers after you have configured the Enterprise Vault server.
Users' computers must have the following:
One of the following versions of Windows:
One of the following mail clients:
Outlook 2003 SP2 or later
Outlook 2007 or later
Outlook 2010 or later
Outlook 2013 or later
Install Internet Explorer before you install the mail client.
If you plan to enable Vault Cache, Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) 2.0 or later must be installed and enabled on users' computers. This service is used by Microsoft Windows Update and is included in all recent versions of Windows. If necessary, it can be downloaded from the Microsoft website.
If you plan to enable Vault Cache, and you have disabled the expansion of PST files on users' computers by setting the registry entry, PstDisableGrow, then you need to request and install the appropriate Outlook hotfix from Microsoft. Note that the hotfix may already have been installed as part of a Microsoft Update.

For Outlook 2007:
