Email Archiving Blitz Wraps Up 2007

Could 2008 be the year when users finally get to grips with email management? Vendors, seeking to tap into IT customers' struggles with Exchange and a constantly shifting regulatory climate, clearly hope so.

The last month has seen a flurry of announcements from suppliers looking to help streamline and secure corporate email. Here is a rundown:


The managed services specialist overhauled its flagship EMS system this week, focusing on Exchange and e-discovery.

MessageOne is now claiming that it can speed up firms' e-discovery efforts through a new managed service called Quick Start. The offering is essentially data capture software that removes the need for journaling, a feature of Exchange that sends a copy of every message off to an archive.

By bypassing the time-consuming journaling process, users can quickly capture data from specific mailboxes, setting up an archive in as little as one day, according to Paul d'Arcy, MessageOne's vice president of marketing. This is a stark contrast to typical archiving projects, which can take 30 to 60 days to set up, he adds.
