Email Archiving Overview

Email archiving is a critical requirement for every organization, but it’s more than just email storage for the sake of record keeping and compliance. The smart buyer goes for an email archive solution that delivers much more.

Mimecast Email Archiving cuts the cost and complexity of secure, accessible email archiving. It gives your users instant access to every email they’ve ever sent or received and it gives you central control of email retention policies.

As much storage as you need, whenever you need it. No more email backups.

Our cloud-based platform stores all your email – internal and external – in a highly secure and resilient archive, giving you as much space as you need.  We charge by the number of users and offer a perpetual storage period, so you get predictable storage costs. We also retain data for all employees past and present.

The result is

  • Reduced costs to store email
  • A lighter load for your Exchange Server
  • Greater productivity – with staff able to access archived email in real-time and without the need for technical support
  • No more user deletion or employees hoarding emails in PSTs
  • Your business need never risk losing important data due to server, storage, budgetary, or mailbox constraints
