MailStore MCAS Boot Camp

If you, or any of your colleagues  would benefit from some technical training on MailStore, this webinar will be a great place to start and will provide a quick and easy route to becoming a MailStore Certified Archiving Specialist (MCAS).

Register for the MCAS training webinar

The webinar itself should last about 60 minutes and will be presented by Ronnie from MailStore who is one of their expert pre-sales engineers.

One key benefit of the MCAS certification is that once your first member of staff passes the MCAS test, we will bump your company’s discount MailStore up to the maximum level (30% from RRP) for a period of 6 months.

The MCAS test itself is all done online, is multiple choice, takes about 60 minutes in total and can be taken as many times as needed (subject to a 24 hour break between attempts).

Any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch sales@zensoftware.co.uk

6 Reasons to Archive Office 365 Email Using MailStore Server


Microsoft have invested tens of millions in their hosting centres, surely as an Office 365 user your data is safe right?

Think again.

An important point that’s all too often overlooked by businesses moving to Office 365, is that the responsibility for your data does not lie with Microsoft.

They operate a shared responsibility policy, which means it’s the uptime of the service they’re concerned with.

There are no provisions for restoring your messages or mailboxes if they’re somehow compromised, the backups they have are purely for disaster recovery.

In this post I’ll look at this and other reasons you should be giving some thought to the ‘what if?’ question…

MailStore Server v10.2: New Web Access Client, Digitally Signed Exports and More…


Great news – it’s here, and it’s available for download now via our website. It’s the latest update to MailStore Server, the email archiving software for Office365, Exchange and MDaemon.

The highlight is a complete overhaul of the web search client, plus the introduction of digital signing for exported email in all three versions of MailStore. Last but not least, this release also sees the introduction of ‘status reports’ for the Service Provider edition.

The developer’s blog announcement mentions they’re ‘bringing the user experience and security to a new level’.  I can’t argue with that from what I’ve seen so far, and the particularly interesting part is that this release is the developmental stepping stone for lots more in the way of improvements in the months to come.

10 Ways MailStore Server Can Help With GDPR Compliance

With 205 million messages being sent every day, email still remains one of the most popular ways to communicate, which means the mailboxes of many businesses today contain all manner of information concerning both customers and staff.

Whether it’s bank details, employment contracts, IP addresses or altogether more sensitive information, the introduction of the Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May next year will force companies to take the responsibility of managing this data seriously.

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

We love the fact MailStore is such a versatile beast.

It’s able to work with pretty much every mail platform on the market and satisfy 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.
