Finally, after a long wait, Enterprise Vault has caught up with some of the third party products which deal with PST migration. At least, it has in some ways. I’m talking about password removal from PST files. This is now an option on the site settings:

23b54b0025946ff23419ea1f256c387e

With this setting enabled (it’s not by default) any PST files which Enterprise Vault attempts to migrate which are password protected will have the password stripped first of all.

And in the world of DTRACE when you hit a password protected file you’ll see something like this:
