Email Archiving is now essential for many organisations as a result of changes to legislation including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in the US. However, for many organisations the problem with email is that it's just too personal. That means it's hard for managers to keep track of their employees communications and far too easy for employee's to delete emails that they don't want the boss to see. Of course, there is also the practical aspect of space on the company servers for email storage. With archiving email can be stored more efficiently, giving the mail server a welcome performance boost whilst also reducing backup times.
At IT Foundations we recommend products from GFI and Barracuda Networks. The GFI products offer a software archiving solution that can utilise MS SQL server within a Microsoft windows and MS Exchange email environment. The Barracuda products are appliance based and provide a stand-alone fully configured out-of-the-box solution that can integrate with any SMTP based email solution.
Further details about both product ranges are available from the following links:
