Why Email Archiving?
Email archiving involves preserving and making all email correspondence to/from an individual searchable. Solutions for email archiving capture email content directly from the email application or during transmission. The messages are usually stored on magnetic disk storage and indexed for easy future searches. Beyond just accumulating emails, these applications index and provide quick, searchable access to archived messages, regardless of the users of the system. Companies may choose to implement email archiving for reasons such as protecting critical data, meeting retention and regulatory requirements, and facilitating e-discovery processes.
