About standard mailboxes

Messages are organized into Mailboxes, mimicking the Mailbox structure of the Microsoft Exchange or Novell GroupWise mail server. In addition, Personal Information Store (PST) files can be loaded into Archive Manager, so Archive Manager can also access messages stored on your local computer.

Archive Manager uses an agent to scan email messages and dynamically build a folder structure that parallels the folder structure of Mailboxes found on the Microsoft Exchange server or within a PST file. The folders found in the Mailbox or PST file are automatically added to the Standard Mailboxes tab in Archive Manager, and can be displayed or hidden by expanding or collapsing the tree structure of the menu.

Navigate to and select the mailbox or folder from the Mailboxes menu, in the left sidebar. A list of the messages in the mailbox is displayed.
Use the Email Search form to further refine the search if required.


Security can be assigned to users to allow them to have access to your standard mailbox. For more information, see Share my mailbox with other users.

Custom mailboxes

About custom mailboxes

Custom mailboxes let you select and copy messages into custom mailboxes and folders. You can group and copy messages from your personal Archive Manager results and copy these to user-defined mailboxes or folders. This provides the ability to group, for example, project- and customer related messages in a single Mailbox or folder, making investigations and research easier to manage.
