Leaving Mail on the Mail Server. Part 2
The space we provide on our servers for your mail is typically more than enough for normal use even when you are travelling and wish to leave it on the server until you return. However, we recommend against keeping your past history and mail archives on our mail server. Although we do backup mail nightly, mail changes so frequently that any backup we might have will be unlikely to have everything you need in the event of a failure. For this reason, if there are any messages or archives you want to keep, you should keep them on your computer and back that up.
While we use every precaution to prevent data loss, there might be some other error that could cause your mailbox on our server to be deleted or otherwise damaged. In either case, you could lose any archives you had kept on our servers.
If you really need backups of your mail, consider Archive111. Archive 111 offers email archiving for compliance with SEC, NASD, NYSE, Sarbanes-Oxley Act, HIPAA and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act archiving requirements. If regulations or prudence require you to keep a copy of your incoming and outgoing email messages, check out http://www.archive111.com for more information.
