I previously wrote a post on the most important archiving features for K12 schools and districts. A colleague quickly pointed out another, often overlooked, feature that can significantly help in cases of emergency, while many IT managers might not necessarily think an email backup is essential to your archive.
No one likes to admit it, but email systems do go down from time to time. Although this was arguably more of an issue with on-premise systems, it’s certainly true of cloud environments as well. Simply put, there’s a reason why all email service providers (ESPs) include a “downtime” clause in their terms and conditions. It can very well happen to anyone, often going unnoticed.
