How long have you been using MailStore Server?
Around 2 years now.
How did you learn about MCAS training and certification?
We initially took the qualification provided by Zen software who we buy MailStore from. They called up and told us that the qualification was now more official and offered by MailStore themselves.
Why did you carry out certification?
Mainly so that we can use the logo for publicity to help with sales but also simply down to personal pride.
How many of your employees are MailStore Certified Archiving Specialists?
Did you use the MailStore study guide? If so, was it helpful?
All of us did use to the study guide to refresh any holes in our knowledge of the product. Pretty much all of our installations are Exchange server based so the use of a proxy is not something we come across too often. The guide is really useful to refer to on an ongoing basis.
To what extent has your technical background knowledge of MailStore improved after becoming certified?
We’ve all learned several new things, in some cases from each other, and in other cases from the study guide material. It has been a useful learning experience.
Are you currently a registered partner with an interest in becoming certified? Then please contact your distributor or our sales team via email.
Our recent case study shows the benefits of switching from an email archiving technology supplied by one of our competitors to MailStore Server technology: The Australian golfing association “Professional Golf Association“ (PGA), whose aim is the promotion of professional golfing, was looking for a less costly alternative to the cloud-based email archiving system from Symantec. At the end of a two-week testing phase, PGA decided in favor of MailStore Server and also took advantage of our competitive upgrade option. This allowed them to reduce the costs of acquisition by 50 percent off the regular list price.
Take a look at this in-depth case study to find out more about the transition to MailStore Server and why Ashley Hunt, Systems Coordinator at PGA, highly recommends MailStore Server.
A new whitepaper is now available for download on our website. The document compares email archiving using the integrated capabilities offered by certain Office 365 plans to email archiving with MailStore Server from Office 365.
Within its standard range of features, MailStore Server allows email files (such as a PST file or a folder containing EML or MSG files) to be archived for specific users. Email files for different users, on the other hand, cannot be archived in a single step.
This can now be easily done using our new batch importing script. The script, along with more details, is available here.

Release of the final version is planned for the end of 2013.
Our case studies illustrate how MailStore Server is suitable for many different application scenarios. In our latest case study on Winbro Group Technologies, an engineering company with headquarters in Coalville / Leicestershire (UK), the email archiving solution was implemented for an email migration project. Before the migration, the old emails were archived with MailStore Server in a one-off operation. The migration from the old email server to the new one was then carried out. This resulted in a significant reduction in storage requirements, since the data volume of the old emails was no longer overloading the server.
The positive feedback from Phil Antill, IT & Facilities Manager at Winbro, is proof of MailStore Server’s success: “In our experience, there is always going to be some friction when rolling out a new IT system. However, there were so few issues with MailStore Server that we would have no reservations about recommending the solution.”
