We are migrating our emails out of trim and see that they are vmbx format (which only play nicely with trim viewer). Is there a way to convert within trim so that when they are extracted they are done so in their original file format e.g. .msg?
Sorry, was busy and failed to send the script. Will do so shortly.
As for your additional questions...
A user can drag and drop directly into TRIM. This will bring in an MSG and not a VMBX. They could have also saved an email to their desktop/network and later imported them. In both cases it's just an MSG and not VMBX.
As for why there may be only VMBX and not MSG, maybe your system settings at one point didn't have "Advanced Long Term" format enabled for some period? That is what saves the MSG files.
Also with 7.3 and above everything is saved as EML and not VMBX/MSG.
Thanks for your quick response. Can TRIM Admin capture the MSG out of an existing VMBX file. sorry for these question as i am not TRIM user and have assigned to extract these VMBX files using TrimPort and render into a browser. hence i am struggling on this. ChanderV

You could also bring in the VMBX files back into Outlook and then re-catalog into TRIM, using the System Settings to capture MSG format. All suggested options will take some level of effort, but I have seen this process performed with positive results.
We are also experiencing same issue where VMBX files need to be viewed outside TRIM, there is a team(external staff) require access to some files which are exported via Send to - web publisher option. However, it displays the attachmentes in the VMBX as MIME encoded messages and there are no rendtions stored at present.
I acknowledge that HP uses EML in RM8 and they have enhancement request(for future release) to consider conversion of existing VMBX files to EML format.
We are also told a workaround to extract and re-catalogue required e-mails with renditions but i am thinking if someone has a utility then it will save the hassle for end users to perform extra steps.
I am running a project to migrate away from TRIM and I am looking for a way to take VMBX files to a form viewable by a mainstream viewer. Could you let me know what tools/scripts you have for converting VMBX and to what formats.
