Messaging Server supports archiving through the Sun Content Management and the Sun Compliance and Content Management Solution. A message archiving system saves all or some specified subset of incoming and outgoing messages on a system separate from Messaging Server. Sent, received, deleted, and moved messages can all be saved and retrieved in an archive system. Archived messages cannot be modified or removed by email users so the integrity of incoming and outgoing communication is maintained. Message archiving is useful for compliance record keeping, message store management, and message back up. See Message Archiving Using the Sun Compliance and Content Management Solution for more information.
Although operational archiving is documented, this feature is disabled until the Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.3 Patch 1 release.
