5 Essential ‘Tune-up’ Tips for Your MailStore Server

Here at Zen Software, we love the fact MailStore is such a versatile animal, able to work with most mail platforms and the vast majority of requirements users throw at it. However, if you’ve got a large mail server running multiple jobs, or lots of hosted mail accounts, for example, it’s possible at some point that you could find yourself pushing the limits of your hardware or bandwidth.

Optimising it isn’t difficult and largely boils down to how fast and how often you need your new email added to the archive. The temptation when setting it up for the first time is to opt for the ‘as fast as possible’ approach, when in reality you may be hammering your resources unnecessarily.

In this post, I’ll look at that and provide some simple tips for optimising your MailStore installation around your business needs.

How to Enable Searching Within Attachments – MailStore Server

Straight out of the box, when you perform searches of your archived email as a MailStore user, it looks for your keywords in the header, body and subject of your messages. What you may not know, however, is that it also has the ability to search within some attachment types too if you enable the feature.

I’ve found this to be incredibly helpful when looking back over conversations with customers, helping me find invoice or project references for example, and I’m sure you’ll find it useful in your working day too.

Attachment searching is actually enabled by default, but it’s limited to only .txt and .HTML file extensions, so you’re not using its full potential.

In this short post, I’ll show you how to enable the feature and get MailStore to re-index your historic email so it works for that too.

Get Better MailStore Email Alerts Using This Powershell Script

better-mailstore-email-alertsLast year I wrote this article that described how you could use a combination of MailStore email archiver’s auditing features, the Windows task manager and a PowerShell script to send you email alerts in the event an archiving job failed.

This worked well but it was a little on the keen side, occasionally being triggered by a job failing that would actually just go on to run fine again shortly afterwards.
