Email Archive
Email Archive is a suite of tools aimed at accelerating the email research and retrieval time for email discovery and compliance.

Email Archive uses Document Locator as its enterprise document management system to capture, store and retrieve email records within the enterprise. This can help reduce litigation risk and improve compliance with government and industry regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley and the FDA, IRS and SEC; improve profiling, searching and retrieval of email messages and attachments; and include the entire company in business continuity plans. It is compatible with all versions of Microsoft Exchange, including Exchange Server 2007's enveloping message format.

Email Archive lets enterprises incorporate copies of email communications within the same system used to manage all other types of unstructured business information. By using records-keeping practices that incorporate email and easily index and retrieve messages, Email Archive can help reduce potential liability as well as regulatory events and audits. Its automatic de-duplication feature sorts through existing stored email to prevent multiple copies from being archived; the email threading feature captures and updates threads of related email conversations in an easy-to-read format.

Additional Email Archive features include the following:

  • Automated rules -- Administrators can define rules to automatically route email messages and attachments.
  • Automated workflow -- Email events can trigger enterprise-designed workflows for business processing of email and attachments. This feature requires an optional module.
  • Document approval -- Request approval for email messages, attachments and faxes as they're imported.
  • Document profiles -- Create special profiles specific to your organization.
  • Email rules -- Users can set up email rules to manage personal email records in Document Locator. This requires an optional module.
