I opened something (e-mail batch 381 pages) that I had already saved as PDF and ran the Preflight (last thing on the Advanced dropdown menu). I asked it to check if it was “Compliant with PDF/A-1b”. It came up with more than 50 errors, it looked like they were mostly related to missing embedded fonts. So at this point I’ll have to say with Acrobat 7.0 I can’t change PDF to PDF/A unless one of you can tell me differently. I guess that would have been a good reason to save the originals, but of course I didn’t.

At least I can be compliant from here on. Obviously I’m more concerned about this for the faculty memos than for my reference questions. 🙂
