Our friends over at the German developer of MailStore Server have been busy conducting an international survey of 480 customers in the United States of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

If you’ve just downloaded MailStore, you’re no doubt primed and ready to start hitting “next, next, next” to get up and running as soon as possible. Before you do however, it is worth just taking a moment to think about your requirements in a little more detail.
We see all sorts of weird and wonderful variations to cater for different customer scenarios, but in most cases you’ll need to consider which combination of “journalling“, and direct connection to individual mailboxes you’re going to use to archive your email.
Exciting stuff! One of the leading Exchange resource sites today published a glowing review of MailStore giving it the highest category of praise and their coveted Gold award.
