Microsoft Exchange Conference (MEC), Orlando, Florida, 1st October 2001 – Microsoft Partner, announced today the launch of MailStore, a policy based, automatic email archiving system that allows easy and rapid retrieval of ‘sent’ and ‘received’ emails, including attachments, on the Microsoft Exchange Platform. MailStore enables organisations to manage their email communication more effectively than ever before through the entire lifecycle of a message through to deletion, complete with a detailed audit trail.’s MailStore works with existing Microsoft Exchange email servers to archive copies of the mail handled by the servers whilst retaining the Exchange message single instance ratio. MailStore categorises, encrypts where necessary, stores and manages all emails in a Microsoft SQL Server database and provides fine granular control over each individual email message. The message policy can be set by the administrator and is based on a number of criteria including To, From, Keywords and Content Type and defines how long each message is to be kept. This ensures that legal and regulatory requirements for the retention and audit of specific documents can be met easily.

“Until now email archiving has posed many problems for administrators,” commented Peter Winder, CEO of “With no formalised email policy many organisations have stored email in an ad-hoc manner that has resulted in important and often legally binding emails going astray. In addition, the costs incurred by companies in providing the disclosure of electronic communication when defending themselves in a court of law is increasing exponentially. MailStore, in providing organisations with a policy based, audited email archiving system, will streamline the entire process saving companies time and money.”

Access to MailStore to search or retrieve email messages is provided through a browser interface; this eliminates the requirement for any additional software to be installed on client machines, making it fast and easy to implement. This, combined with the fact that MailStore is a comprehensive and intuitive application that requires minimal training before using, will provide organisations with a faster return on investment. MailStore also significantly reduces the time taken to recover email messages lost or corrupted in the event of a system failure.

Peter Winder continues, “IDC predict that the 9.7 billion emails sent every day in 2000 will soar to 35 billion every day by 2005, but organisations are already finding managing email an expensive burden. MailStore’s easy to use browser interface increases user productivity through its simple search and retrieval methods, whilst at the same time reducing calls to the IT helpdesk.”
