FuseMail announced that it will offer hosted e-mail archiving for customers starting in September. Being able to track and file old e-mails is important for many businesses. With an archived service, you will be able to keep more e-mails longer, adding to your business documentation.
And, the new service doesn't just archive your e-mails - it also archives IMs in real-time. As more people collaborate via IM, it's even more important to be able to archive IM conversations.
According to the release, the new service will also offer: search index for archived documents, multi-user control with the ability to give restricted access to an accountant or attorney; e-mail and SMS alerts for detection of leak; and compliance monitoring.
For many businesses, utilizing outsourced e-mail services can be unnerving because so much valuable and sensitive information goes across e-mail communication, but relying on a company that can provide additional support beyond simply e-mail is enticing.
Do you outsource your e-mail? If not, does this new announcement make outsourcing e-mail more appealing? Comment below.
