MailVault is available for Microsoft Windows and Linux.
New users may download a copy to test run and explore MailVault. The demo copy is full-featured, but limited to three users and one thousand emails. We encourage the “try before you buy” approach and in case you need to, you may apply for an evaluation license.
Note: This is standalone MailVault, where a single installation serves a single organization. Service Providers should explore MailVault SPE.
The latest version of MailVault is v5.2.1
Full software: v5.2.1 (March 19, 2023)
Incremental upgrade: v5.2.1 (March 18, 2023)
The system requirements obviously depend on multiple factors, the most important being the volume of email you expect to archive, especially on an ongoing routine basis. Storage space would also depend on how long you wish to retain the email.
For small companies, a modern machine, with 4 – 8 GB of RAM (out of which MailVault will use 512MB – 1 GB) should be adequate. Larger organizations, or if the volume of email is significantly larger, are better served by 8 – 16 GB of RAM. If you are a large organization with many thousands of users, or have other specific needs and would like us to help you size your system requirements, or if you have specific queries, please get in touch with us.
This is a completely self-contained installable (no prerequisites required), and should work on all Windows Desktop Editions (Windows XP onwards), and all Windows Server Editions (Windows Server 2003 onwards).
Currently, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of MailVault are available. However, we strongly recommend using 64-bit, as support for 32-bit will be dropped going ahead.
This is a zipped file, which you can simply uncompress in the desired location. The enclosed README file walks you through the steps.
We currently support Ubuntu and CentOS. While both 32-bit and 64-bit builds of MailVault are available, we strongly recommend using 64-bit, as support for 32-bit will be dropped going ahead.
In case you plan to install Linux afresh, our recommendation would be Ubuntu. A LTS release like 20.04.x or 22.04.x is ideal.
MailVault for Linux requires the following software to be present on your system:
Most recent systems will probably already have this; if not it’s a simple matter to install it using your distribution’s package manager.
