MailVault has been designed to integrate with your mail infrastructure in an easy, non-intrusive fashion.
Inspite of the flexibilty MailVault offers, whenever possible we would recommend the following basic integration steps:
As simple as that! Your users continue to send and receive mail as before (and optionally have access to MailVault too)
Of course, you can have variants depending on your specific requirements and enviornment. For instance, you could archive internal mail to one mailbox and external to another – and then decide to only archive the external.
In the rare cases that the company does not use a mail server and everyone simply POPs from their individual accounts (or uses webmail), and you’d like to maintain a central archive, simply setup MailVault to download mail from the individual POP3 accounts.
