What is e-mail archiving and how to enable it?

Question:

What is email archiving?

How to enable it?

 

Answer:

Email Archiving allows you to back up and store all your organization's mail and access it easily if needed. Doing so it helps maintain legal compliance.

 

Enable Incoming/Outgoing archiving

Mail archiving incoming:

Activation for inbound email archiving is outstandingly simple. It requires a simple MX-record change in the DNS of the domain, which you can find on the follow Link

All inbound email traffic will then go to SpamExperts system first and then a copy will be then made and stored in one or multiple storage locations. The email is next delivered to the unchanged mail infrastructure of the recipient. 

In case the incoming filtering for the domain has already been enabled before - then enabling archiving is just a matter of single click in Openprovider Control Panel.

Please note: that the archive you buy from us is per 10gb. If you reach this limit, we will upgrade this automatically for you with 10gb. There is no maximal limit.

 

Mail archiving outgoing:

To archive outbound emails via SpamExperts, an administrator needs to redirect the outbound email traffic to SpamExperts system. This can be done by either configuring the mail server to use smtp: 683.smtp.antispamcloud.com on port 587   and using SpamExperts archiving system as a smart host (thus, the entire mail server or only some of the domains will be archived), or by reconfiguring the settings (only selected users will be archived).

For this add the below SPF record:

"v=spf1 a:683.submission.antispamcloud.com -all"

Or add a:683.submission.antispamcloud.com to your existing spf record.

Please note: that the archive you buy from us is per 10gb. If you reach this limit, we will upgrade this automatically for you with 10gb. There is no maximal limit.
