I have heard this question asked a few times …
What is the difference between a Message ID and a Saveset ID?
Well the answer is that a Message ID in ‘pure’ messaging terms is a unique identifier for a digital message, it is globally unique. It’s generated and applied by the messaging system which sends the message. Here is an example:
A Saveset ID is a unique identifier generated by Enterprise Vault for an archived item. Here is an example:
The SaveSet ID is made up of a number of components, using the above as an example, here is a description:
2012100 Checksum High
99800974 Checksum Low
201210021109570000 Message Delivery Date/Time (in this particular case, because this is an email)
> 2012 = year
> 10 = month
> 02 = day
> 11:09:57.0000 = Time
B033AD25E5A12FC3FC7849191C136AB1 Transaction ID
Remember that you can see the Saveset ID in a number of different ways, for example:
* From Outlook with the Enterprise Vault Outlook Add-in installed you can press Control + Shift and click on an Enterprise Vault toolbar icon, and then go to Vault Information.
* From ‘advanced’ browser search (search.asp?advanced=3) you can add in SSID in to the list of attributes that will be returned with your results.
