MailStore version 11 is now live and available for download from our Web site. Just a few weeks ahead of the EU General Data Protection Regulation implementation, this timely release focuses on two key areas, security and compliance.
If you’re wondering where email archiving fits into the GDPR piece, you might find our recent video ‘10 ways MailStore can help satisfy GDPR‘ and the official MailStore advisory PDF a good starting point.
