Message Archiving

This feature is available in Enterprise Edition only

Message Archiving is a method of storing all email traffic for a domain in a separate location on the mail server. Typically, this is a feature used for companies that need mail servers in compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Message archiving allows you to set up rules for saving messages for specific domains.

To get started, click the Settings button on the main toolbar, then select Message Archiving from the Routing tree view.

Note: Archives are not deleted by SmarterMail, and as a result they can get very large. Be sure to check your archive folders regularly to see if they should be backed up and removed from the hard drive.

Adding / Editing a Rule

To apply an archiving rule to all domains on the server, click on "All Domains" in the list. To add a rule for a single domain, click on New Rule icon.

Domain - The domain that should be archived, in the format of example.com.

Archive Path - The path on the hard drive that should be used to store the messages.

Rule - Choose to save none of your messages, all messages, incoming messages, or outgoing messages.
