Live Use

Implemented inOctober 2012
Number of licensed users270
IT infrastructure in use
  • Windows 7
  • Exchange 2010 SP3
  • Outlook 2010
  • PST Files
User administrationUsers were created by synchronizing with Active Directory in
MailStore Server.
Archiving methodEach night at a set time, MailStore Server checks the emails in all mailboxes and assigns them to their users in the archive. Employees’ individual functional levels determine how long it is before emails are deleted from the mailbox, ranging from one to six months (max.). This ensures that the volume of data on
Exchange Server remains consistently small.
End user access
  • MailStore Outlook Add-In
  • MailStore Web Access
  • MailStore Mobile Web Access
Evaluation of the technical support“Fast, professional, and available any time via telephone or
email.”
Evaluation of the documentation“Excellent. I found the information on distributing and updating MailStore via GPO particularly useful. The documentation allowed us to update MailStore Server 7 to Version 8 without any problems.”
Evaluation of the live use“End users can use MailStore Server without any previous training. The only real difficulty is that a couple of users sometimes get confused when MailStore deletes emails from Outlook.”

Overall Assessment

“Getting to grips with the storage problem on our Exchange Server had been a major challenge for us. MailStore was able to noticeably reduce the workload of the email server immediately after a simple and fast implementation. Another advantage is that both users and the IT department find it easy to operate.”
