Please note: this tutorial only covers the specifics of archiving an Intranator Appliance Pro or an Intranator Business Server (called “Intranator” in the following). It is assumed that you already have a MailStore Server installation or test installation and are familiar with the fundamentals of MailStore Server. Please refer to the Manual or Quick-Start-Guide for more information.

MailStore Server offers several ways to archive emails from Intranator, which are described below. If you are not sure which archiving method best suits your company, please refer to chapter Choosing the right archiving strategy.

Archiving Individual Mailboxes

When archiving individual mailboxes, Intranator functions the same as any other email server. Please refer to the corresponding chapter Archiving Server Mailboxes in the MailStore Server manual.

Archiving Multiple Mailboxes in one Step

When archiving multiple mailboxes, Intranator functions the same as any other email server. Please refer to the corresponding chapter Batch Archiving of IMAP Mailboxes in the MailStore Server manual.

Archiving Incoming and Outgoing Emails Directly

With Intranator, all emails sent or received through the system can be stored in MailStore Proxy format and made accessible on a network share. The data can then be archived with MailStore Server using archiving tasks of type MailStore Proxy.

Step 1: Activating Email Archiving on the Intranator System

Set up Intranator’s archiving mode as follows:

  • In Intranator’s web interface log in to the administration
  • In the menu, click on “Services”
  • Click on Email and then on Archiving
  • Activate the option deepinvent MailStore Proxy
  • Enter the access data you would like to use to log in to the archive network share.

Step 2: Preparing the System on Which MailStore Server was Installed

Start Windows Explorer on the machine with the MailStore Server installation. Map a network drive to the path shown in Intranator’s web interface (e.g. \\intranator\archive) using the access data from step 1 above. Let Windows save the password and make sure that the connection is persistent.

Step 3: Configuration of MailStore Server

Configure MailStore Server to archive the data stored by Intranator in regular intervals (e.g. daily at 11pm) using an archiving task of type MailStore Proxy.

After archiving, emails can and should be deleted from the archive network share automatically by MailStore Server. The MailStore Server archiving task can be configured accordingly.
