|Project leader||Juergen Krapp, Network Administrator|
|Length of the test phase||One 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.”|
|Decision||Factors tipping the scales towards MailStore Server:|
|Implemented in||February 2014|
|Number of licensed users||285|
|IT infrastructure in use|
|User administration||Users were created by synchronizing with Active Directory in MailStore Server.|
|Archiving method||Beltz 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.|
|End user 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.”|
