The Benefits of Alfresco Email Archive
Skytizens has developed the Alfresco Email Archive addon to provide 100% backup on all emails, no matter what email service you use. It catches and analyzes outgoing and incoming information, alerting the company to misuse of information. It provides a report on emails caught with the alert system, providing structure results penalties for an accurate return on search keyword matches. This module allows you to set a specific amount of time for keeping email records. Finally, it is the answer to the ever-present problem of the “disappearing email”.
How Does It Work?
The Alfresco Email Archive addon stores all of your company’s outgoing and incoming email in a central email archive. This module automatically organizes the email files by the user associated with the email message. All content including attached files and the external sender/receiver’s information is stored.
More than just a repository, this module uses IMAP to manage files and folders of the backed-up email repository for ease of recovery.
The addon also acts as a gatekeeper, “reading” information that leaves and enters the company’s email system. This extensive gatekeeper feature allows administrators to search for triggering phrases both in the email itself and in most attachments. The feature has stemming ability to catch specifics based on root word so nothing gets by this reader. The feature also alerts the company to flagged email exchanges and acts as an important part of data handling procedures.
Users can still access their email using their preferred email service provider but an archive remains in the Alfresco repository. Thanks to the powerful data capture abilities of Alfresco, users can utilize this archive addon to search the content of their own email attachments at lightning speed—something that most email providers can’t do. The advanced search gives users and admin the ability to recover deleted emails that otherwise would be lost forever.
Individual Access – Users can save and review their own archived emails, which are organized into managed folders by date.
100% Backup – Since a clone is made of every outgoing and incoming email, it is impossible to permanently lose an email. Even if a user deletes all traces of the original file, users do not have permission to delete the Email Archive copy. They view emails in read-only mode. Administrators set the duration of time for the addon to clone emails. There is no maximum limit.
Compatibility – Integrates with STMP servers of all popular mail service providers (Outlook, Zimbra, etc.) to store and sort emails automatically. The module supports .EML and .MSG file format.
Content Analysis – Using search phrases and dynamic content parameters, the module will analyze and catch emails as they are saved to the archive. The addon sends an email notification that the condition of the search has been fulfilled. The analysis of the document includes the email header, body, and attachments. Content analysis supports stemming, or the ability to find similar phrases based on the root of the search phrase.
