Does anyone have a solution for archiving old mail. I actually expected the archiving function within Kerio to do this job however on closer investigation this was not the functionality that it offers.
Ideally an automated solution or third party software would be ideal but I would even consider a semi manual solution (even to a PST file).
I have just implemented Kerio and imported the users existing mailboxes up to 10GB in some cases and the performance of the client's are really bad.
If I cant resolve this issues i'm going to have to abandon Kerio. My terminal server is crashing due to the load and the users are really mad.
We use the EMA 400 Pro Appliance by http://www.artec-it.de/en/Default.aspx
It's an appliance that integrates into KMS by offering a mail address, the KMS can integrate into its backupfunction.
What it does is archiving and indexing all mails that are incoming or outgoing.
EW are quit satisfied by it, support is fast and reliable and the appliance itself has some good features retrieve archived messages.
It complies to Sarbanes-Oxley and other Laws concerning that matter.
Users get a webinterface to retrieve their archived mails on their own.
Due to the crippled LDAP function of KMS we are not able to integrate the users automaticly. This would work if our environment would be AD driven.
By this time we have about 1.7 million mails in the archive that take about 600 GB space. As german laws force us to keep mails, that contain business information for 10 years, heavy space requirements are another part of the archiving topic.
