Email Archiving With MailStore Server at Cognor

Cognor Logo Case Study MailStore Server

Operating in the steel industry, Cognor specializes in the manufacture and distribution of steelworks and metal-scrap trading. The increasing globalization of business has seen the volume of information and data sent and received by email every day rising steadily in recent years, and it was for this reason that Cognor decided to implement MailStore Server as its email archiving solution at the end of 2022.

Cognor Reaps Many Benefits From Its Professional Email Archiving Software

The main reasons for procuring an email archiving solution were the burgeoning volume of email data, compliance with legal regulations, and a wish to reduce the load on the email server. Also, it was decided that constraints on mailbox sizes (quotas) should no longer play a role. Emails that had been swapped out to PST files could be moved to the archive, and the PST files then deleted. In addition, MailStore Server helps to simplify backup and restore processes, while providing companies with the option of simple migration to a more powerful email server later on.

„Among its advantages, I would include the ease of deployment and subsequent administration, as well as integration with various mail server connection scenarios, even unconventional ones like ours. It also allows for efficient deployment across a large number of computers and relatively simple and intuitive use by staff. Moreover, the reasonable price of the license convinced us to purchase the solution.”
