You remember Steve, right? That’s Steve from Sales, the guy who needed access to an email that he deleted over a year ago. You probably remember the hassles of having to first find and then restore his mailbox. Perhaps you even recall sifting through his messages, trying to find that single, solitary email, and dedicating a whole afternoon to the process. Thankfully, things don’t have to be this way. I’m talking about a product called GFI MailArchiver, a message archiving solution that makes searching through internal and external email as simple as firing up your web browser and searching for the message in question.
Out of the box, most email server products provide limited monitoring, security, and anti-spam functions. In those that do, the feature set tends to be weak and seemingly implemented as an afterthought. However, the new GFI MailEssentials 8 product from GFI Software not only provides the most comprehensive anti-spam capabilities currently available, but also industrial-strength mail monitoring, the ability to add disclaimers to all outgoing messages, and more. Impressively, GFI provides many of the product's best features as freeware, making GFI MailEssentials 8 a must-evaluate product for administrators of both large and small networks alike.
As a network administrator, I’m sure you understand the critical nature of security event ID 529. Well, possibly not. If you have Windows 2000 auditing enabled, you’re probably very familiar with the incredible number of event types that you come across when viewing your Security logs.
