You can use what you suggested, using a Transport Rule, or the preferred is a third party archiving solution. If you truly want it to be searchable archive, such as for discovery, and available for the users at any time, you really need to go third party. Take a look at GFI's Mail Archiving. If you want to go further, you can try Zantaz EAS.
