Addressing E-mail Archiving and Discovery with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

Addressing E-mail Archiving and Discovery with Microsoft® Exchange Server 2010 is a new white paper available to download from the Microsoft site.

With businesses generating and sharing an ever-increasing volume of information through e-mail, the ability to protect and preserve these critical communications is essential. Whether your motivation is to improve storage management, meet regulatory requirements for data retention, or lower the costs of conducting electronic discovery (e-Discovery), implementing an effective e-mail archiving and discovery solution can offer a number of benefits.

Even though there are clear-cut drivers for adopting such solutions, a significant number of organizations rely instead on potentially less efficient means to store and search these enormous amounts of data. For example, when users have small mailbox quotas, they often archive older messages into local Microsoft® Outlook® Data Files (.PST files), removing this important historical record from Exchange Server. With these messages no longer under the direct control of your IT department, it can be very challenging for your organization to comply with regulations or respond in a timely fashion to e-Discovery requests.

To help you more effectively address these needs, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 introduces integrated e-mail archiving, retention, and discovery capabilities. These built-in tools can help you simplify the process of preserving and discovering e-mail without having to change the way your users or administrators work with and manage Exchange Server
