Without a doubt, technology has revolutionized the way business is done. The vast majority of internal and external communication is now done through email, instant messaging, VOIP and other types of electronic communication. In addition, most business documents exist in digital form. The digitization of business has had significant implications for litigation. Legal eDiscovery is now an essential part of settling cases between organizations. Previously, many companies believed that eDiscovery was only for organizations that were public or highly regulated, but now most companies recognize that electronically stored information (ESI) regulations are applicable to all organizations and there is an ever-increasing need for cost-effective eDiscovery.

Email archiving is emerging as a critical new IT application for managing email. For legal discovery, storage management, and regulatory compliance, email archiving provides important benefits that cannot be achieved with native email applications. The purpose of this “Email Archiving 101” paper is to provide a basic introduction to email archiving and explain how it benefits management of the email application server. The leading enterprise email application is Microsoft® Exchange Server, and this paper is geared toward this application; however, the principles discussed apply to all messaging applications.
This white paper will present an improved approach to legal discovery for Microsoft® Exchange systems provided by Mimosa Systems. Unlike existing methods for legal discovery of Exchange Server data, Mimosa’s approach delivers major advances in performance and granularity of information. To begin this paper, we will review the industry forces that are driving the need to manage email for legal discovery, followed by a discussion of the market-leading enterprise messaging application—Microsoft Exchange Server and the challenges it presents for legal discovery.
