Alfresco Software Inc. announced that it has partnered with Inovox to deliver open source email archiving to address business requirements driven by numerous federal and state regulations including Sarbanes Oxley, SEC 17a 3-4, HIPPA, Basel II and NASD to name but a few. The solution, developed by Inovox, supports Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, Postfix, Sendmail and Kolab allowing email to be archived into Alfresco. The email monitoring operates as a SMTP proxy and uses Alfresco’s Web Service interface to store the emails and all of their attachments. Alfresco is able to manage these emails with full auditability and the option of transforming them into a different format for easy access or long-term readability. The emails and attachments can be automatically categorized, full text indexed with meta-data extracted to enable easy, rapid searching and access. This allows customers to reduce cost through open source and manage compliance, litigation discovery and productivity.
