Top tips for email management and archiving

Though around 30 per cent of organisations have some form of archiving in place, most consider that this would not constitute adequate control.  A recent survey by C2C found that 65% of respondents had set mailbox capacity limits meaning in effect, that end users were responsible for managing their own mailboxes.  In practice, this self regulation probably results in significant lost productivity and constitutes a poor strategy for managing and discovering data.  In this article, we consider the top five questions being by resellers interested in recommending email management:
