Losing an important email can take away a lot of time…

Email is a key part of business

With us all receiving tens, if not hundreds, of emails per day – across uncountable devices, it is so easy to accidently delete or misfile an email, never to be seen again!

With nearly every industry now relying on email as a formal, (and legally recognised) form of communication, it has never been more important to ensure you never lose anything from your mailbox.

I have seen occasions in my career where a client won a court battle against a supplier, because they were able to produce email evidence of a contractual discussion. The win saved them from a potential £25m loss. Quite a unique example, however a pertinent one to the significance of access to email.

So much like your file data, you’d want to ensure your backup is protecting your emails too?


What do I have to do?

With email carrying such a level of status to all our livelihoods, we’d best make sure that we can recover a single email, just as readily as our entire file server.

Most entry to mid-level backup services won’t have a provision to back up your email platform. Particularly if it’s something intricate like Microsoft Exchange that you are running within your own premises, or, if you are hosting your email within a service such as Office 365.

But! There are services that can.


What is available to us?

There are several backup service operators that now support direct integration to back up from, and restore to, email hosting services, (whether that is on premises or within services including Office 365).

Every IT professional will have their preference and as a provider of Managed IT Services we have a few options open to us, which we compare to best meet the needs of our individual clients.
