Which organizations should be thinking about email archiving?
The second reason why organizations should look to archiving emails is a little bit tertiary to the record retention regulations, and revolves around electronic discovery (e-discovery). Eight out of ten electronic discovery events for civil procedures or for regulatory inquiries involve email. So, employees are willing to say almost anything over email, they share contracts and business documents, and that's why they're so popular with litigators and regulators. Right now, many organizations spend a lot of time searching through backup tapes, PST files, NSF files and file shares looking for emails to produce in electronic discovery.
