Solutions for Microsoft Exchange Server
Enterprise On-Premise and Cloud Archiving eDiscovery Platforms for
Exchange 5.5, 2000, and onward to Exchange 2019
As Microsoft Gold Partner and with integration technologies for two decades on Microsoft Exchange, MessageSolution creates products that support all versions of Microsoft Exchange server and Outlook
client technologies launched in the past 20 years - from Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 2000 all the way to Exchange 2019. MessageSolution Archiving eDiscovery Platform can be conviniently deployed on a device of your choosing (see our product data sheet for minimum requirements), behind your network firewalls, and connects to the Exchange server via WebDAV or
CDO to capture and archive email based on your preferred settings. After emails are collected from Exchange, they are compressed, deduplicated and processed with Single Instance Storage, before being archived and indexed for data
search. With compliance and eDiscovery policies can be implemented, these data processing protocols can also effectively reduce the storage requirements of your Exchange server by an average of 80% and significantly slow storage growth.
MessageSolution Platform is able to archive from ‘email message only’ to envelope archiving, on a scheduled mailbox basis or in real-time by using the Journal Box for compliance and litigration
support. With a flexible storage data offloading policy (stubbing), the storage reduction options allow you to offload email content, or attachments only, or both, or none; MessageSolution storage policy also allows administrator to
schedule when to clean up emails from the Exchange Server for each mailbox, or select when to empty Exchange’s Journal Box after importing the email data from Journal relay. MessageSolution Platform can collect data and archive from
Public Folders as well as users’ mailbox folders and group information, allowing the administrator to choose what mailboxes and folders to collect data and set retention policies on.
Active Directory and User Management
Enterprise Email Archive connects to Active Directory to locate users for archiving. Enterprise Email Archive polls Active Directory every time before it performs an archiving process to check for added users, automatically updating the archive’s user list.
If a user is removed from Active Directory, Enterprise Email Archive does not automatically remove that user from the archive, as that would remove that user’s archive as well. Simply disabling archiving for that user ensures previously archived data remains in the archive. Normal retention policy rules will then apply to the ex-employee’s archived data. This user’s individual archive can be easily assigned to a current employee to manage.
From within Enterprise Email Archive’s administrative interface, the archive administrator can assign specific archiving, retention, and archive access settings to entire departments or individual users. Enterprise Email Archive also allows the administrator to create special ‘archive-only’ groups, which will not affect Active Directory in any way.
Indexing and Searching
MessageSolution Platform is a next-generation solution, designed specifically for today’s high volume unstructured messaging environments. MessageSolution indexes every piece of data that enters the platform in
the same way that a search engine spider crawls and indexes web sites to respond immediately to queries. MessageSolution Platform does not rely on SQL or other third party databases, saving the cost of additional database purchases,
configuration and database management time.
Most companies do. When management imposes mailbox quotas, users often respond by hoarding their emails into PST files. This places their organization in a dangerous position, as management may be unaware of what information may (or may not) be uncovered. Enterprise Email Archive contains a PST Migration Utility that allows the administrator to import users’ local archive files into the network archive. Once PSTs are in Enterprise Email Archive’s system, administrators can assign the PSTs to a repository or user. This is especially useful if an employee has left the company, but management needs to retain that user’s PSTs for use by another employee.
Outlook Integration Features
MessageSolution’s default archive access pathway is an intuitive web interface. However, MessageSolution Enterprise Suite
Edition offers additional archive access options. The Suite Edition integrates with users’ Outlook
client via MSI Installer, allowing Suite Edition users to access and search their archive conveniently within their Outlook client. The Suite Edition also provides offline archive access,
as well as mobile archive access from mobile devices such as BlackBerrys and PDAs.
