We are running KMS 6.7.2 and we want to enable archiving to "fix" two problems :

- Quick recovery of deleted items. 3-4 times per year, we have user who deleted important emails in a specific INBOX and doing a recovery from the backup take a lot of time (have to decompress each files to find the user directory, etc.).

- Quick recovery of the mail store after a file system problem. Last summer, our server crashed and some files were deleted or recovered in lost+found, which is a PITA to get up back.

Because of #2, I would like to put the archiving into a NFS mount so that if the local filesystem is having problems, the archiving directory might be safe since it's not the same disk and filesystem.

Does anyone tried that setup? Because in the admin guide, I see this :

By technical reasons, it is necessary to
locate the archiving directory locally (i.e. on the server where Kerio MailServer is running).

Any reason why it have to be local?

This was my plan too! To put the archive on nfs mount in case of OS failture, mail corruption or even disk failture. So any ligth on this would be good.

I run the nightly backups for most of our servers to an NFS share on another box "just in case". Works great with CentOS hosting the mailstore and then having the backup on another box completely.
