=== Archiving Local Email Programs ===
 +
MailStore supports archiving emails from locally installed email applications such as Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird. This archiving method is especially useful for archiving historic data and is generally executed only once for each user. The emails located in the users' local profiles are placed in the central MailStore archive on the server. A detailed description of how to set up this archiving method is available in the article [[Archiving_Email_from_Outlook,_Thunderbird_and_others|Archiving Email from Outlook, Thunderbird and others]].
  
== Archiving Local Email Programs ==
+
Once the dispersed inventory data has been stored in the MailStore archive, we recommend setting up central archiving profiles directly on the MailStore server for regularly archiving the user mailboxes. These are described below.
  
MailStore unterstützt die Archivierung aus lokal installierten E-Mail-Programmen wie beispielsweise Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express oder Mozilla Thunderbird. Diese Archivierungsmethode findet vor allem bei der Übernahme historischer Daten Verwendung und wird in der Regel für jeden Benutzer nur einmal ausgeführt. Die in den lokalen Profilen der Benutzer befindlichen E-Mails werden hierdurch in das zentrale MailStore Archiv auf dem Server übernommen. Eine detaillierte Beschreibung zur Einrichtung finden Sie im Artikel [[E-Mails aus Outlook, Thunderbird u.a. archivieren]].
+
=== IMAP / POP3 ===
 +
Archiving individual mailboxes on any email server can be done using the IMAP or POP3 protocols. Information about setting up the archiving process is available in the article [[Archiving Server Mailboxes]].
  
Wurden die verteilten Bestandsdaten der Benutzer einmalig in das MailStore Archiv übernommen, empfehlen wir für die regelmäßige Archivierung der Postfächer die Anlage zentraler Archivierungsprofile direkt auf dem MailStore Server. Diese werden im Folgenden näher beschrieben.
+
=== Microsoft Office 365 ===

+
=== Hosted Exchange ===
 +
For archiving a Hosted Exchange mailbox, MailStore requires the access data for the email account made available by the provider. This includes user name (usually the email address), password as well as the (Exchange) server name.
  
Die Archivierung einzelner Postfächer auf beliebigen E-Mail-Servern kann über die Protokolle IMAP oder POP3 erfolgen. Informationen zur Einrichtung der Archivierung finden Sie im Artikel [[Serverpostfächer archivieren]].
+
Generally, the email application identifies the name of the Exchange server automatically using the autodiscover function (if supported by the service provider). This is why the server name is typically unknown to the user.
  
== Hosted Exchange ==
+
The server can be detected manually using the ''Exchange Proxy Settings'' in Microsoft Outlook. They can be found at ''Tools | Account Settings | Change| More Settings | Connection | Exchange Proxy Settings''
  
Zur Archivierung eines Hosted Exchange Postfachs benötigt MailStore die vom Provider zur Verfügung gestellten Zugangsdaten für das E-Mailkonto. Hierzu zählen neben dem Benutzernamen (i.d.R. die E-Mail Adresse) und dem Passwort auch der (Exchange-)Servername. In der Regel ermittelt das E-Mailprogramm Namen des Exchange Servers mithilfe der Autodiscoverfunktion automatisch (sofern dies vom Provider unterstützt wird), daher ist dieser dem Benutzer im Regelfall nicht bekannt. Um die benötigten Informationen zu ermitteln, gibt es verschiedene Ansätze, die im Folgenden näher beschrieben werden.

=== MailStore Exchange Autodiscover Tool ===
+
The setup of the archiving process for a Hosted Exchange mailbox is the same as the setup for a single Exchange mailbox on a local Exchange server. Additional information is available at [http://en.help.mailstore.com/Archiving_Emails_from_Microsoft_Exchange_2007#Archiving_Individual_Mailboxes| Archiving Individual Exchange Server Mailboxes].
  
Das kostenlose [[Media:ExchangeAutodiscover.zip|MailStore Exchange Autodiscover Tool]] stellt die komfortabelste Methode zur Ermittlung des Hosted Exchange Servernamens dar.
+
== Archiving Multiple Mailboxes in One Step ==
  
Nachdem Sie das Tool [[Media:ExchangeAutodiscover.zip|heruntergeladen]], entpackt und gestartet haben, ermittelt es den Servernamen anhand des Benutzernamens und des Passwortes automatisch. Die so gewonnenen Informationen können nun direkt im Archivierungsprofil eingetragen werden.

=== Hosted Exchange ===
 +
If your Hosted Exchange service provider offers setting up a "service account", this account can be used to archive multiple mailboxes in MailStore Server centrally. A "service account" is a user account with extended access privileges to multiple Exchange mailboxes. Additional information as well as detailed instructions for setting the appropriate privileges is available in our Exchange implementation guides:

{{Hosted_Exchange_Versions|Archiving_Multiple_Exchange_Mailboxes_Centrally|Exchange Server}}
 +
== Archiving Incoming and Outgoing Emails Directly ==
 +
To implement the archiving of all incoming and outgoing emails directly without using a local email server, several methods are available depending on which features are provided by you email service provider.
  
Über die ''Exchange-Proxyeinstellungen'' in Outlook lässt sich der angesprochene Server auch manuell ermitteln. Sie finden die Einstellungen unter ''Extras | Konteneinstellungen | Ändern | Weitere Einstellungen | Registerkarte Verbindung | Exchange-Proxyeinstellungen''

=== Hosted Exchange ===
 +
In order to archive all incoming and outgoing emails in a hosted Microsoft Exchange environment, it is required to set up journaling for all users or just a specific a distribution group of Exchange users. Please contact your hosting provider if this is possible. Information on how to archive emails from a journal mailbox can be found in our Exchange implementation guides:

=== MailStore Gateway ===
 +
If none of the previous options are available and sending and receiving emails is done via SMTP/POP3, the free program MailStore Gateway can be used as it provides SMTP and POP3 proxy functionality. Technically, MailStore Gateway is placed between the local email clients (e.g. Thunderbird, Outlook, etc.) and the email server of the email service provider. Email clients are reconfigured to send and receive emails via MailStore Gateway, instead of the email service provider's server.
  
== Stapelarchivierung von IMAP-Postfächern ==
+
<p class="msnote">'''Please note:''' MailStore Gateway only supports encrypted connections to protect login information and the transferred email content. The inbound connection parameters (e.g. port, encryption type) are used for the outbound connection to the email service provider's server as well.</p>
  
Eine Anleitung zur Einrichtung der [[Stapelarchivierung von IMAP-Postfächern]] unter Verwendung einer CSV-Datei finden Sie im entsprechenden Artikel.

The following are general steps to setup MailStore Gateway for the SMTP/POP3 proxy archiving scenario. Please refer to the [https://help.mailstore.com/en/gateway/ MailStore Gateway Manual] for detailed instructions about:
  
== Microsoft Hosted Exchange ==
+
* Installation and setup
 +
* Logging on to the management console
 +
* Creating mailboxes
  
Sofern Ihr Hosted Exchange Provider die Einrichtung eines "Service Accounts" anbietet, ist hierüber die zentrale Archivierung mehrerer Postfächer in MailStore Server möglich. Bei einem "Service Account" handelt es sich um ein Benutzerkonto mit erweiterten Berechtigungen für den Zugriff auf mehrere Exchange Postfächer. Weitere Informationen sowie eine detaillierte Anleitung zur Einrichtung der benötigten Berechtigungen finden Sie in den Artikeln zu [[E-Mail-Archivierung_von_Microsoft_Exchange_2007#Mehrere_Exchange-Postf.C3.A4cher_zentral_archivieren|Exchange Server 2007]] sowie zu [[E-Mail-Archivierung_von_Microsoft_Exchange_2010#Mehrere_Exchange-Postf.C3.A4cher_zentral_archivieren|Exchange Server 2010]]

Once a new MailStore Gateway mailbox has been created, the configuration of the email clients must be changed. On the ''SMTP Proxy'' and ''POP3 Proxy'' tabs in the MailStore Gateway Management Console, the generic client configuration is shown. The example below demonstrates which particular settings need to be modified, followed by instructions on how to configure them in well known email clients.
  
Zur Realisierung einer Archivierung sämtlicher ein- und ausgehender E-Mails ohne die Verwendung eines lokalen E-Mail Server stehen Ihnen in Abhängigkeit der unterstützten Protokolle Ihres E-Mail Providers verschiedene Methoden zur Verfügung.

<p class=msnote>'''In environments with branch- or home offices, please note:''' Please keep in mind that all email clients have to be set up for using the MailStore Gateway. Because of this, the email clients in branch- or home offices have to be routed through the main office for sending or receiving emails. This can be done by using a VPN connection, for example.</p>

Gehen Sie zur Einrichtung des MailStore Proxy wie folgt vor:
+
==== Setup of Email Clients ====
 
+
Next, configure your email clients to use MailStore Gateway.
Installieren Sie den MailStore Proxy-Server auf einem Rechner, der über eine Verbindung mit dem Internet verfügt. Dies kann der selbe Rechner sein, auf dem auch der MailStore Server installiert ist, ist dies jedoch keine Voraussetzung für die Einrichtung.
 
Rufen Sie anschließend die Verwaltungsoberfläche über den MailStore Proxy Admin auf und richten Sie für die eingehende (POP3) und ausgehende (SMTP) Verbindung jeweils einen Server ein (Tipp: Wenn Sie Ihre E-Mails bei verschiedenen E-Mail Servern abrufen verwenden, können Sie bei Bedarf weitere Proxy-Server zur Konfiguration hinzufügen).
 
 
 
: [[Image:Proxy_server_settings_smtp_de.png|600px|center]]
 
 
 
* Vergeben Sie für den lokalen SMTP-Server einen aussagekräftigen Namen
 
* Wählen Sie unter ''Eingehend'' die IP-Adresse aus, auf welcher der Proxy-Server Verbindungen im lokalen Netzwerk annehmen soll (Standard: ''Alle IP-Adressen'')
 
* Tragen Sie den verwendeten Port ein (Standard: 25)<br/>'''Hinweis:''' Sollte auf dem Rechner, auf dem der MailStore Proxy-Server läuft, bereits ein Programm installiert sein, welches den Port 25 abhört, so muss für den MailStore Proxy ein alternativer Port (bsp. 26) verwendet werden. Bitte beachten Sie, dass diese Einstellung bei der Einrichtung der E-Mail-Clients ebenfalls berücksichtigt werden muss.
 
* Geben Sie unter ''Ziel-Server'' die SMTP-Server Adresse Ihres Providers ein
 
* Tragen Sie den verwendeten Port (Standard: 25) ein
 
* Falls die Verbindung zum Zielserver verschlüsselt werden soll, wählen Sie unter Verschlüsselung den Verschlüsselungstyp. Ob die Verbindung zum Zielserver verschlüsselt wird, ist völlig unabhängig davon, ob die Verbindung zum MailStore Proxy verschlüsselt ist.<br/>'''Hinweis:''' Beachten Sie, dass beim Verschlüsselungstyp SSL die Verbindungen in der Regel nicht über den Port 25 sondern über Port 465 stattfinden. Ändern Sie ggf. den Wert für das Feld Port hinter Ziel-Server entsprechend ab.
 
* Erfordert der im Feld Ziel-Server eingetragene SMTP-Server eine Authentifizierung, können Sie in den Feldern Benutzername und Kennwort Zugangsdaten festlegen. Diese werden dann für die Verbindung zum Ziel-Server verwendet. Somit ist es z.B. nicht erforderlich, diese Zugangsdaten auf den Arbeitsstationen zu hinterlegen.
 
 
 
Nachdem Sie die SMTP-Server Verbindung konfiguriert haben, wechseln Sie auf den Reiter ''POP3 Proxy Server'', um diesen ebenfalls zu konfigurieren
 
 
 
: [[Image:Proxy_server_settings_pop3_de.png|550px|center]]
 
 
 
* Vergeben Sie für den lokalen POP3-Server einen aussagekräftigen Namen
 
* Wählen Sie unter ''Eingehend'' die IP-Adresse aus, auf welcher der Proxy-Server Verbindungen im lokalen Netzwerk annehmen soll (Standard: ''Alle IP-Adressen'')
 
* Tragen Sie den verwendeten Port ein (Standard: 110)<br/>'''Hinweis:''' Sollte auf dem Rechner, auf dem der MailStore Proxy-Server läuft, bereits ein Programm installiert sein, welches den Port 110 abhört, so muss für den MailStore Proxy ein alternativer Port (bsp. 111) verwendet werden. Bitte beachten Sie, dass diese Einstellung bei der Einrichtung der E-Mail-Clients ebenfalls berücksichtigt werden muss.
 
* Geben Sie unter ''Ziel-Server'' die POP3-Server Adresse Ihres Providers ein
 
* Tragen Sie den verwendeten Port ein(Standard: 110)
 
* Falls die Verbindung zum Zielserver verschlüsselt werden soll, wählen Sie unter Verschlüsselung den Verschlüsselungstyp.

Ändern Sie ggf. den Wert für das Feld Port unter Ziel-Server entsprechend ab.
 
 
 
Nachdem Sie alle notwendigen Einstellungen vorgenommen haben, muss der MailStore Proxy-Server Dienst einmal neu gestartet werden. Anschließend können Sie das Konfigurationsprogramm schließen.
 
 
 
=== Einrichtung des verwendeten E-Mail-Clients ===  
 
 
 
Im nächsten Schritt konfigurieren Sie Ihre E-Mail-Clients für die Verwendung des MailStore Proxy (nachfolgend beschrieben unter Verwendung von Mozilla Thunderbird und Outlook 2007).

Latest revision as of 08:25, 15 February 2021

Please note: This article only addresses archiving methods in environments without an email server. It is assumed that you already have a MailStore Server installation or test installation and are familiar with the basic functionality of MailStore Server. Please refer to the Manual or the Quick Start Guide for more information.

MailStore Server offers several methods for archiving emails from an email server; they are described in the following. If you are not sure which archiving method is best for your company, please refer to chapter Choosing the Right Archiving Strategy.

Creating and Synchronizing User Accounts

When emails are archived, they are always assigned to individual users. For each user, whose emails will be archived with MailStore, a user account has to be created in MailStore. In addition to manually setting up new users, MailStore Server provides several options for importing existing user data.

Active Directory Synchronization

Within an Active Directory Domain Service environment, MailStore's internal user database can be synchronized with the active directory of your company. A description of this feature is available in the article Active Directory Integration.

Generic LDAP Server Synchronization

MailStore Server offers support for generic LDAP servers, which is described in detail in the article Generic LDAP Integration.

Using a CSV File

In relation with IMAP batch archiving, using a CSV file constitutes another option for importing user data. Detailed information about this topic is available in the article Batch Archiving IMAP Mailboxes.

Archiving Individual Mailboxes

Archiving Local Email Programs

MailStore supports archiving emails from locally installed email applications such as Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird. This archiving method is especially useful for archiving historic data and is generally executed only once for each user. The emails located in the users' local profiles are placed in the central MailStore archive on the server. A detailed description of how to set up this archiving method is available in the article Archiving Email from Outlook, Thunderbird and others.

Once the dispersed inventory data has been stored in the MailStore archive, we recommend setting up central archiving profiles directly on the MailStore server for regularly archiving the user mailboxes. These are described below.

IMAP / POP3

Archiving individual mailboxes on any email server can be done using the IMAP or POP3 protocols. Information about setting up the archiving process is available in the article Archiving Server Mailboxes.

Microsoft Office 365

If you are using Microsoft Office 365, please follow the instructions in our article Archiving Emails from Microsoft 365.

Hosted Exchange

For archiving a Hosted Exchange mailbox, MailStore requires the access data for the email account made available by the provider. This includes user name (usually the email address), password as well as the (Exchange) server name.

Generally, the email application identifies the name of the Exchange server automatically using the autodiscover function (if supported by the service provider). This is why the server name is typically unknown to the user.

The server can be detected manually using the Exchange Proxy Settings in Microsoft Outlook. They can be found at Tools | Account Settings | Change| More Settings | Connection | Exchange Proxy Settings

The setup of the archiving process for a Hosted Exchange mailbox is the same as the setup for a single Exchange mailbox on a local Exchange server. Additional information is available at Archiving Individual Exchange Server Mailboxes.

Microsoft Office 365

If you are using Microsoft Office 365 or Microsoft Exchange Online, please follow the instructions in our article Archiving Emails from Microsoft 365.

Hosted Exchange

If your Hosted Exchange service provider offers setting up a "service account", this account can be used to archive multiple mailboxes in MailStore Server centrally. A "service account" is a user account with extended access privileges to multiple Exchange mailboxes. Additional information as well as detailed instructions for setting the appropriate privileges is available in our Exchange implementation guides:

Archiving Incoming and Outgoing Emails Directly

To implement the archiving of all incoming and outgoing emails directly without using a local email server, several methods are available depending on which features are provided by you email service provider.

IMAP-Multidrop Mailbox

If your email service provider supports setting up and using an IMAP or POP3 multidrop mailbox, it can also be used to archive all incoming and outgoing emails in MailStore. Setup procedures are described in the article Archiving IMAP and POP3 Multidrop Mailboxes.

Microsoft Office 365

If you are using Microsoft Office 365, please follow the instructions in our article Archiving Emails from Microsoft 365.

Hosted Exchange

In order to archive all incoming and outgoing emails in a hosted Microsoft Exchange environment, it is required to set up journaling for all users or just a specific a distribution group of Exchange users. Please contact your hosting provider if this is possible. Information on how to archive emails from a journal mailbox can be found in our Exchange implementation guides:


MailStore Gateway

If none of the previous options are available and sending and receiving emails is done via SMTP/POP3, the free program MailStore Gateway can be used as it provides SMTP and POP3 proxy functionality. Technically, MailStore Gateway is placed between the local email clients (e.g. Thunderbird, Outlook, etc.) and the email server of the email service provider. Email clients are reconfigured to send and receive emails via MailStore Gateway, instead of the email service provider's server.

Please note: MailStore Gateway only supports encrypted connections to protect login information and the transferred email content. The inbound connection parameters (e.g. port, encryption type) are used for the outbound connection to the email service provider's server as well.

Setup MailStore Gateway

The following are general steps to setup MailStore Gateway for the SMTP/POP3 proxy archiving scenario. Please refer to the MailStore Gateway Manual for detailed instructions about:

  • Installation and setup
  • Logging on to the management console
  • Creating mailboxes

After these steps, a mailbox with a unique ID (i.e. mbx-dead1234beef5678) should exist.

Once a new MailStore Gateway mailbox has been created, the configuration of the email clients must be changed. On the SMTP Proxy and POP3 Proxy tabs in the MailStore Gateway Management Console, the generic client configuration is shown. The example below demonstrates which particular settings need to be modified, followed by instructions on how to configure them in well known email clients.

In environments with branch- or home offices, please note: Please keep in mind that all email clients have to be set up for using the MailStore Gateway. Because of this, the email clients in branch- or home offices have to be routed through the main office for sending or receiving emails. This can be done by using a VPN connection, for example.

Example

Setup of MailStore

Setting up archiving processes for MailStore Gateway mailboxes is done using archiving profiles. General information about archiving profiles is available in chapter Working with Archiving Profiles.

Before configuring MailStore Server, please make sure that a MailStore Server user account exists for each user whose emails are to be archived with the MailStore Gateway. Please refer to chapter User Management for more information.

Important notice: It is imperative that, in user management under Properties, the email address is specified for each user. This is the only way to make sure that the emails in the archive are assigned to the appropriate users. If the POP3 user name does not match the user's email address, the user name has to be added separately.

Please proceed as follows:

  • Log on as MailStore Server administrator using MailStore Client.
  • In MailStore Server, click on Archive Email.
  • To create a new archiving profile, select MailStore Gateway Mailbox from the Email Server list in the Create Profile area of the application window.
  • A wizard opens that guides you through the setup process.

  • Select E-mail Client and click OK.

    Please note: To be able to archive a MailStore Gateway mailbox, MailStore Server users along with their email addresses must exist in the MailStore Server user management. If this is not the case, MailStore Server will offer to set up and run the directory synchronization at this point. Once completed, the wizard will resume.
    Alternatively, you can cancel the wizard and create users manually as described the in chapter User Management.

  • Fill out the fields Host, Mailbox ID and Password. Click on Test to verify the data entered.

    If MailStore Gateway uses a TLS certificate from a certificate authority that is not trusted by the MailStore Server computer, the option Accept all certificates must be checked.

    Arch MailStore Gateway Client 02.png
  • Adjust any further settings such as how to handle emails with unknown addresses or asking MailStore Server to delete emails after they have been archived.

    Please note: If you are additionally archiving messages from the users mailboxes, you have to set the target folder names here to the folder names that match the names that were created by the user mailbox archiving profiles. Otherwise, additional or similar folders could be created in the users' archives. The folder names are case-sensitive.

  • If the option Synchronize with Directory Services before archiving is enabled, the MailStore Server user list will be synchronized with the configured directory service before the archiving process actually runs. This has the advantage that, for example, new employees will be created as MailStore Server users before archiving which enables MailStore Server to sort their emails into the correct archives.
  • Click on Next.
  • The timeout value only has to be adjusted on a case-by-case basis (e.g. with very slow servers or network connections).
  • Click on Next.
  • At the last step, select a name for the new archiving profile. After clicking on Finish, the archiving profile will be listed under Saved Profiles and can be run immediately or automatically, if desired.
