In-house Email Archiving Systems vs Hosted Systems

What are the advantages and disadvantages of an in-house email archiving system verses a hosted system?

Those are really the two principle avenues for email archiving. A "hosted" system is basically an archiving system that is contracted through an outside company. It's an outside service that connects into your email server(s) and captures email as they come through -- moving and storing the email offsite at a remote location. Hosted services are either priced by mailbox-per-year or by the amount of storage consumed.
