Test Phase

Project leaderJuergen Krapp, Network Administrator
Objectives
  • Fulfill legal compliance requirements
  • Reduce the workload of the email server
  • Eliminate mailbox quotas
  • Simplify backup and restore processes
  • Protect against data loss
  • To be able to quickly search all emails
Length of the test phaseOne week
Evaluation of the test phase“ELO Archiv, our previous archiving solution, never managed to fulfill our expectations. We particularly liked how the MailStore solution was installed within two to three hours and you could start using it immediately. Of course we tested everything first but we had no problems throughout the entire test phase. This is everything we had imagined for our email archiving.”
DecisionFactors tipping the scales towards MailStore Server:

  • Low acquisition costs, intuitive operation, minimal system requirements, good range of software sharing options for the client

Archiving methodBeltz chose a scheduled archiving strategy. Each night at a set time, MailStore Server checks the emails in all postboxes and archives all new emails. All emails that are older than two years are deleted from the server in order to minimize the exchange service storage requirements. These deleting rules can be defined directly when setting up an archiving profile.

  • MailStore Web Access
Evaluation of the documentation“It’s superb. We quickly learned to appreciate in particular the documentation on software distribution and the included templates.”
Evaluation of the live use“MailStore provides a better Outlook integration in comparison with the previously installed solution. The user satisfaction as well as performance significantly increased thanks to the migration to MailStore Server.”

Overall Assessment

“We were totally dissatisfied with our previous archiving solution and discovered MailStore when searching for alternatives. MailStore impressed us with its low purchase price, straightforward installation procedure, high level of usability, excellent documentation, competent and quick support, as well as continuous further development.”
