Archiving Process

Journaling Messages to Global Relay Archive

Journaling is commonly implemented by firms to address compliance, litigation, monitoring, business continuity and disaster recovery issues. Archiving from journaling reduces the strain and liability of storing data by backing it up, removing it from its native environment, and storing it in a secure, geographically separate location.

Compliance Archiving & the Importance of Envelope Journaling

Exchange Envelope Journaling - How it Works

Setup and provisioning of Microsoft Exchange with Global Relay Archive is simple, ensuring security and rock-solid reliability. Exchange manages domains ( within a database know as a "Store". Exchange supports a defined number of Stores. Each Exchange Store can support multiple domains and associated Users.

  1. Domains forwarded to Global Relay Archive which do not have an associated Customer Archive will be held in quarantine with that Stores' Exchange administrator being notified.
  2. Please refer to Global Relay's "Exchange Envelope Journaling How-To" documents for detailed configuration instructions (Global Relay SMTP Connector and IMAP Downloader)

PSTs and Bcc/DL Mail

If PST files are burned to CD used as part of the compliance storage systems, you must ensure messages contain an envelope Journaled message which will appear as an attachment to the message. Otherwise, the messages are not preserving the Bcc/DL recipients and therefore can not be proven authentic.
