Test Phase

Project leaderScott D. Zane, Managing Director of Information Technology
Objectives
  • Reduce the workload of the email server
  • Protect against data loss
  • Enable quick search through all emails
  • Meet compliance standards and be prepared for eDiscovery requests

“My former company was involved in some litigation. We had no archiving option. A majority of the evidence discovery was based on email requests of a dozen or so employees. I spent close to 6 months of my life collecting, indexing and reviewing more PST files then I care to recall. It was painful and I vowed that it would never happen again.”

Length of the test phaseTwo weeks or less
Other tested solutionsMicrosoft Enterprise CAL’s for archiving in Exchange
DecisionLegacy Vacation Club chose MailStore for the following reasons:

  • Extremely affordable price
  • Low initial installation and set-up effort
  • Technical characteristics like the ability to export archived emails as PST’s or the easy one-click restore of emails

User administrationUsers were created by synchronizing with Active Directory in MailStore Server.
Archiving method“The user accounts were added automatically to MailStore Server due to its integration with Active Directory.”
Archiving methodThe Legacy Vacation Club opted for scheduled archiving when selecting the archiving method. All emails sent and received within the organization are archived entirely using the ‘journal’ mailbox.
Access“We do not allow end users access. It’s used by IT to compile PST’s as requested for HR investigations and other needs. If a user needs a copy of some dates of files we complete that request for them as well.”
Evaluation of the technical support“Helpful and quick to respond.”
Evaluation of the documentation“The technical documentation is helpful and we think it is good. We found all the information we needed.”
Evaluation of the live use“My IT Team loves MailStore.”

Overall Assessment

“Having lost 6 months of my life due to discovery and searching PST’s along with depositions that accompanied that task, I am very grateful, if ever faced with that situation again, that I have MailStore to lean on. It was the least expensive and most sensible choice for us. We didn’t need a heavy high end product.”
