About Email Archiving

ISS has implemented Symantec's Enterprise Vault, the market leader in email archiving systems.

Email archiving works by scanning the Exchange databases on a nightly basis for items meeting the archiving policy. These items are then moved to secondary storage and replaced by a message shortcut in the user's mailbox. Double-clicking the shortcut icon instantly retrieves the archived email so that it can be read. Users can perform a search of archived messages and permanently delete them from the archive. They can also choose to manually 'push' items into the archive that are not harvested by the automated policy.

Will I need training to use email archiving?

There is no formal training required to use email archiving.  User documentation and FAQs are available on this site.
