Email Archiving with MailStore Server Basics

Emails can be archived from the mailboxes of public cloud services such as Microsoft 365 or G Suite, email servers such as Microsoft Exchange or MDaemon as well as from locally installed email clients. Dependent on their type, archiving tasks can be performed continously, manually or based on a schedule.
