Following on from Part 1 of this guide where I explained how to create Exchange Granular Restore (“EGR”) compatible backups in BackupAssist, in this second instalment I will look in more detail at how we can restore email from within the backups we have created.
With the release of BackupAssist v7.3 a brand new method for restoring exchange mailbox data was introduced named ‘Exchange Granular Restore’. This is still a relatively new feature for many of our customers so I thought it would be useful to put together a guide to introduce this new feature and how best to make use of it. Continue reading
Interested in MailStore but too busy to install the trial? Struggling to fit in a live webinar?
A close second are the recorded versions I post from time to time on the Zen Software Youtube Channel like this one, entitled an Introduction to MailStore.
No, you won’t get to ask me lots of awkward questions via the live chat which is obviously a shame (!), but it is better suited to skimming through over a coffee if you’re flat-out taking care of the day job.
Yes, the latest iteration of MDaemon Messaging Server is upon us! This most recent version of the popular Microsoft Exchange alternative for small businesses is only a point release – you could easily mistake it for a major update given the size of the release notes.
With a long list of features to highlight for both admins and end users I’ll waste no further time and get straight on with what I think you might find most interesting…
One of the benefits we offer to registered resellers of our email archiving software, MailStore, is a free online product certification course followed by an official accreditation for those that complete it successfully.
The idea of the course is to improve confidence in selling and supporting the software, and benefits include an increased level of discount for a period and official logo for use on the site.
Medhurst IT are one such company who decided to put a number of their staff forward and our colleagues over at German developer MailStore took a few moments to ask them about their experiences.
As I’m sure you’re aware by now, I run regular live webinars for anyone new to our products who’d like to be shown around without necessarily having to install a trial. They are however, during the day, so I thought I’d share a recorded version for those of you who might like to take a look at your leisure…
This one’s a general overview of MDaemon to begin with and then I drill down into a walkthrough of the product and its various interfaces.
I hope you find it useful, don’t forget, for a full list of future webinar dates and to book your place on any of them please click here
In this latest case study, Phil Antill, IT & Facilities Manager at Winbro, kindly took the time to talk to us about his archiving requirements and succesful implementation of MailStore.
The Leicestershire-based engineering company initially installed MailStore to aid with a mail server migration, however it’s now being used to automatically manage their greatly-reduced mailbox sizes.
It’s likely that if you’ve been using Outlook to archive your emails, by the time you get to the point where you’re ready to use a dedicated email archiving product such as MailStore, you’ll have a number of PST archive files knocking about, and quite possibly in a variety of locations.
There are a long list of reasons why we recommend against archiving to PST (which you can read all about in another post), but in this article I’m going to focus on what to do if you have gone down that route, and show you how to upload and centralise multiple PST archives in one go rather than one at a time.
Even with the best intentions, I know it can sometimes be difficult to squeeze in attending our live webinars during the working day so for convenience I’ve just uploaded a recorded version of the one I ran last week demonstrating a MailStore installation.
In this video I show you how straightforward it is to get MailStore up and running on an Exchange box, so it’s ideal if you’re completely new to the product and also useful if you’re planning on installing MailStore imminently and could do with a refresher.
