Archiving Management based on Profiles

Overall Concept

In MailStore Server, email archiving is controlled using archiving profiles. An archiving profile contains the following data:

What is archived (for example, a specific mail server)

How much is archived (for example, specified mailboxes or a specific folder within a mailbox)

Additional settings such as deletion rules (these settings are disabled by default, enabling you to safely test MailStore in live operating environments)

Note: Archiving profiles can either be run manually or according to a schedule and they can be modified or deleted at any time. This has no effect on previously archived emails.

Note: In MailStore Server, archived emails are always associated with specific users and stored in the corresponding user archives.

Archiving Your First Email

MailStore users who are assigned the required privileges by the MailStore Administrator are able to archive individual mailboxes, local email client profiles, and email files.

Administrators are additionally able to centrally archive email for several or all users. Archiving profiles such as Multiple Mailboxes can be used for this purpose. To get to know MailStore, we recommend first archiving a single mailbox or a local email client profile. To do this, proceed as follows:


  • Click Archive Email
  • In the Create Profile area, select the source for archiving your email.
  • You can then specify the properties of the archiving profile using the Setup Wizard provided.
  • The last page in the Setup Wizard dialog box provides a Finish button, which you need to click in order to run the archiving profile.
  • After archiving is complete, you can immediately access the archived emails using the folder structure provided on the left of the window. The archiving profile you have just created is now displayed in the Saved Profiles list. From here, you can run it whenever it is required.


Note: If you are logged on as the MailStore Administrator while setting up the archiving profile, you can also specify the user archive in which the emails are stored. If you are logged on as a regular user, this is always your own user archive. Please note that in case you are archiving emails into the archive of another user, you will not be able to access these emails, as long as the Archive Access is blocked for MailStore administrators in the compliance settings.
