What is the use case for archiving email? Is it just for legal compliance, auditing, etc? I.e. I don't see a useful purpose for restoring user content from an archive, it appears this needs to be done from a backup instead.

Hi Jason,

I have seen some customers use Archiving for legal compliance, especially with German customers as it keeps a copy of all incoming and outgoing emails. I find the archive much more quicker to restore a single email from instead of a backup as a backup restore has to be done with the server stopped whereas the archive is live and accessible while the server is running.

Also it can be used to retrieve old emails that no longer exist in the backups (depending on how long you keep backups for). I have used the archives for this this very purpose in the past.

I hope this helps a little and gives you some ideas of the benefits of the Archive feature in Kerio Connect.

All the best,
