MailStore Server was developed to efficiently and securely manage large and rapidly growing volumes of data for many years to come. To this end, MailStore Server features highly optimized storage technology that does not require an external SQL server – even with a large number of users and corresponding volumes of data – and offers users fast access to their search results.
While MailStore Server can be used ‘out of the box’ in smaller companies, larger companies should consider the solution within the context of their broader IT infrastructures.
As such, before using MailStore Server in live systems, we recommend implementing a short planning phase that takes the following aspects into account for long-term system performance and scalability:
- Selecting the relevant hardware sizing
- Selecting a suitable storage system
- Selecting the right archiving strategy
- Investigating the impact of search operations

Cofely, the Benelux division of GDF SUEZ Energy Services, made the decision to deploy MailStore Server in a large-scale migration project in June 2012.
Around 5,300 mailboxes had to be migrated to a central Microsoft Exchange infrastructure at Cofely offices in Brussels. The biggest challenge was keeping the server downtime to a minimum during the migration process. Emails were to be relocated from the mailboxes using an archiving solution, thus considerably reducing the volume of migration data as well as email service downtime.
MailStore Server was well equipped to meet these and other requirements: “We settled on MailStore Server early on in the evaluation phase. The solution combines low costs and ease of use with extensive scripting options, making it possible for us to implement our individual requirements with a very high level of automation. The solution is simple and reliable,” explains Jan Vermaelen, CTO at Cofely.

Companies gain access to numerous economic, technical, and legal advantages through the use of MailStore Server. This includes protection against data loss, relief for email servers, backup of PST files, compliance with legal requirements, and an increase in employee efficiency through fast access to the search results of all emails.
Another, even more obvious advantage of the solution is that it supports email migration scenarios. MailStore Server allows a completely new migration concept – one that is being used by more and more businesses.
The principle is very simple: Instead of migrating existing emails to the new system, which takes a lot of time and effort, they can be simply transferred to the archive. Users can continue to access their emails from a familiar working environment such as Microsoft Outlook. This means that complex migration processes are no longer necessary, and the new email server can operate without the extra burden of legacy data.
“By archiving our emails with MailStore we were able to switch from old server to new server – without an extensive migration process for a large number of mailboxes. Our users are now able to access their old emails via MailStore and there was no need to burden the new server with loads of old emails,” explains Takahiro Shima from Yahoo! JAPAN.

Editor Donald T. Hawkins and 15 experts elaborate on the emerging field of digital archiving for home users in their book ‘Personal Archiving – Preserving Our Digital Heritage.’ Hawkins also presents MailStore Home for the secure storage of email. We asked him how the book came about and specifically why our free email archiving and email backup software is worth recommending.
Where did the idea for the book ‘Personal Archiving’ come from?
Digital data are fragile and perishable and preservation is one of the most important reasons to undertake an archiving project. That consideration led eventually to the publication of Personal Archiving: Preserving Our Digital Heritage.
Who is the intended audience of the book?
Information professionals, archivists, historians, librarians, and anyone with a mass of data they would like to organize and preserve.
The fourth chapter, ‘Software and Services for Personal Archiving,’ covers email archiving. Why is it necessary to back up emails?
I think emails are worth backing up because they provide a unique vantage point and allow one to see what the writer was thinking, his/her emotions, as well as an insight into their thought processes. You don’t get this with other types of documents. Emails are also good for preserving a record of events and what led up to them. I mention some of the reasons on page 64 of my book and also refer to this site which has some other good reasons. I also think the example of the British Library paying about $51,000 for the e-mail archive of the poet Wendy Pope shows that it is valuable to keep e-mails.
MailStore Home is a software application intended for private users. How did the solution win you over?
It’s free, can handle emails from many different platforms, and provides a good search capability.
Thank you very much for the interview.
