OpenSource Mail Archiving
Hey everyone. I ran across a new open-source application called Mailarchiva. This software allows you to archive all of your email for long term storage. This software is easy to install and seems to be very efficient. The company claimed that the open source edition with a decent server (Dual Xeons and sufficient RAM) could archive 1,400,000 messages per day. I was very impressed with their performance claims.
Mailarchiva provides full-text searching. The enterprise edition will allow for clustering search servers if your archive is significantly large. One main feature missing was the ability to rotate to long term storage such as a tape device. Although disk storage is becoming cheaper and cheaper; a long term storage solution almost always is needed.
