Hi Everybody,

I was thinking about the best Backup Solutions for my Infrastructure. We currently have 100 Mailboxes and mailboxes of 2-3 gigs. The kerio archiving solution I don't see as the best because it sets all the emails in one folder. And in an organization with daily 1000 emails thats very much. I was thinking about creating an Grandfather - Father - Son Solution. So I will be backing up all the users emails and keeping that for years. And in windows GPO for Outlook creating a policy to autoarchive every month. So users only have mails on the server with mails for that year. The other emails are going on to there local hard disk. Incase an user Harddisk fails for some reason I think that it will be possible to retrieve there e-mails from tape.

What do you think about this solution, or does somebody has an better solutions.

I want to build an backup solution with the least amount of data loss.

Do you want a backup solution or archiving solution?

Perhaps you should use the backup feature of Kerio Mailserver.

With this you can make a full backup or incremental backup of all mail on the server into an archive (zip)

You could setup a system which makes a full backup ones a week and make incremental backups every day in between, to ensure a backup exist.

You can also set how many backups the mailserver should hold, e.g. you could set it to 4, in this case 4 full backups will be kept.

In your case this would be about 1200 gigs (without the incremental files). If you setup a hard drive (or network share) with enough space, you can easily make backups of the store.
