We use MailMarshal which provides an archiving system for mail in
addition to excellent activity reporting. It only runs on Windoze NT4
and above :-(, however the level of reporting and functionality it
provides is worth it.  Although my network is fairly small it is very
scalable as the hardware requirements are modest.

Subject: Email appliance that keeps detailed logs and full archive of
all emails?

Hello all,

I had a scenario recently where getting access to the full text of an
email sent from a corporate network six months back would have been
extremely useful.

Of course I got hit with Murphy's Law, and the email did not exist in
any current email store nor did it exist in the backups.

I see that lots of email appliances are big into anti-spam and
anti-virus, but what about functionality for incident response?  The
ideal mix of features for me would be something extremely fast that can
handle being at an inbound/outbound choke point for up to 20,000 users,
keeping detailed logs of all activity and also a full archive of all
emails inbound or outbound.

Any ideas?
