Storage readers are roughly split down the middle on archiving email: 52% do, while 48% don't. However, 58% of nonarchivers say they do plan to archive email in the future, while 38% say their company doesn't require it. Of those who do archive email, 45% use a third-party tool, a significant rise compared to four years ago when only 18% did so.
