Do You Archive Your E-mail?



Does your company archive its e-mail, or will it soon?
For how long?
How?

Whether they're required to or not, a majority of Storage readers we surveyed last month are now archiving end-user e-mail for significant amounts of time. Thirty-five percent of readers are archiving e-mail for five years or more. That said, the proportion of companies relying on commercial archiving tools is relatively small--only 19%. The remainder archive e-mail along with their backups or use the messaging server's built-in utilities. The latter is seen as less than ideal. As one user puts it: "Microsoft Outlook is buggy software and quits archiving on any sign of trouble. This way of archiving is of no use when the volume of e-mail is large."
