Email archiving for legal, compliance and IT management
IBM® Content Collector for Email provides automated, policy-driven email archiving to help reduce IT cost and improve the efficiency of email systems. It helps companies meet legal and compliance obligations for retaining messages using a value-based archiving approach, which aligns the IT cost of archiving data with the value associated with that data. IBM Content Collector for Email helps organizations archive their IBM Lotus® Domino®, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Exchange Online and SMTP email systems.
