As an MSP you always be on the lookout for those services that can help you generate that all-important recurring revenue.

Another thing to look for is those which don't require lots of your precious billable hours to manage.

Finally, you shouldn't need to be Jordan Belfort to sell it - let’s be honest, for most MSPs that isn’t the favourite part of the job!

Cloud-based email archiving is one such service that ticks all those boxes, which is why we’re really thrilled to announce we’re now able to offer and support MailStore Service Provider Edition (SPE) as part of our MSP portfolio.

As of today, you can provision, manage and monitor your licence usage, right from within our partner portal AND you can enjoy our top-notch pre and post-sales support.

Great news on the way if you own a MailStore Server licence you've let expire...

Starting today, and through to Midnight on the 15th December, we're offering a 50% discount on the renewal of any expired MailStore Server licence key!

Perhaps a licence has expired as a result of difficult times financially?

Maybe it's simply been forgotten about during a rush to make the move to a work-from-home setup?

This is an opportunity not to be missed to get a major saving on bringing an existing licence back up to date and continuing to benefit from the security, productivity and efficiency gains MailStore has to offer.

The world of online data storage, and specifically email archiving, has changed immensely in the last few years.

When Exchange Online was announced on June 3rd, 2015, it promised a “truly bottomless archive”. So long as the necessary licenses were in place, Office 365 E3, Exchange Online, or Exchange Online Plan 2, mailboxes would never run out of storage.

At least, that was the initial pitch.

Unfortunately, the phrase “truly bottomless archive” hasn’t totally held up.

On November 1st, 2021, Microsoft has announced they'll begin enforcing a cap on their unlimited archiving to 1.5 TB.

It's a special day for our friends over at German vendor MailStore Software!

To celebrate an incredible 15 years in business, they've come up with an exclusive offer through the month of November for anyone purchasing a new MailStore Server license.

From 15th October to 15th November 2021, all new MailStore Server license purchases will receive an additional 3 months of free upgrade cover and support in addition to the selected term.

If you're going for a 1-year option that's 15 months for the price of 12 (or an extra 25%)!

German email archiving vendor MailStore has just announced version 13.2 of their popular archiving solution for M365, Exchange and other mail platforms. The two highlights of this release are a major increase in performance and a significant step in scalability.

Version 13.2 of MailStore Server and MailStore Service Provider Edition (SPE) see an increase in the advised upper limit for user numbers on a given installation, enabling you as the IT service provider to widen the audience you can talk to about archiving to include larger customers now as well as SMB's.

Despite the many advances in digital communication, email still reigns supreme as the bedrock of most business interactions. Although numerous communication platforms like Microsoft Teams and Slack have grown in importance, email remains the most popular and efficient way to communicate for your SMB customers.

There's good reason for this of course - email chains and archives allow us to easily organise and keep track of the back-and-forth flow of conversation. Headers and subjects allow for quickly searchable keywords, and important document attachments can be easily retrieved through a cursory examination of the inbox.

As the trusted IT provider for your clients, one of the 'perks' of your job is that you’re the defacto go-to authority for all manner of (sometimes fairly dry) topics. Email retention policy quite possibly ranks high on the 'dry' scale, but it’s a topic both you and (and they!) really do need to be aware of. The mailboxes of your customers are rapidly growing treasure troves of useful, important and sensitive information, and that will continue to be the case for years to come. This makes them ticking time bombs if not cared for in the right way.

In case you missed the news, as of 1 July 2021, Exclaimer Mail Archiver has been discontinued. But what does this mean for you and your customers? There'll be continued support for Exclaimer Mail Archiver up to September 30, 2022, but if your customers aren't yet ready to give up the many benefits of an independent email archiving solution, you'll need to be discussing migration to a better alternative.

From important information about ongoing deals to sensitive HR records and beyond, email archiving is the ideal way to keep the contents of mailboxes safe but still accessible. It's also an easy way as an IT provider to bolster the standard email backup strategy you put in place for your customers.
