DO understand the ‘true’ meaning of email archiving
An email archive is a repository generally kept in a non-productive environment to securely preserve emails for compliance and operational purposes. A ‘true’ email archiving system automatically extracts message contents and attachments from incoming/outgoing emails and after indexing, it stores them in read-only format. This ensures that archived records are maintained in their original state.
