Archiving Emails from MDaemon


This tutorial only covers the specifics of archiving an MDaemon mail server. It is assumed that you already have a MailStore Server installation or test installation and are familiar with the fundamentals of MailStore Server. Please refer to the Manual or the Quick Start Guide for more information.

MailStore Server offers several ways to archive emails from an MDaemon mail server which are described below. If you are not sure which archiving method best suits your company, please refer to chapter Choosing the Right Archiving Strategy.

Synchronizing Users

In addition to the internal user databases, MDaemon may also use SQL databases or LDAP directory services such as Active Directory or OpenLDAP to manage and authenticate users. It is recommended to set up directory service synchronization in MailStore as well. Additional information on synchronizing users can be found in the corresponding chapters of the MailStore Server manual:

 


Archiving Individual Mailboxes

By following the procedure described here, a single MDaemon mailbox can be archived for a specific MailStore user. The archiving process can be executed manually or automatically according to a schedule.

Setting Up the Archiving Process

For each mailbox please proceed as follows:

For the IMAP-TLS and IMAP-SSL protocols only: You have the option to ignore SSL security warnings. Generally, these warnings appear if an unofficial certificate is used on the server.

 


Archiving Multiple Mailboxes in One Step

 

When using the IMAP-TLS or IMAP-SSL protocols with a self-signed SSL certificate, you have to set the option Ignore SSL security warnings if you want to execute the archiving profile based on a scheduled task. Otherwise the execution of the task will fail.

 

All users with configured email address

Choose this option to archive the mailboxes of all users who are set up in MailStore’s user management along with their email addresses.

All users except the following

Choose this option to exclude individual users (and thereby their MDaemon mailboxes) from the archiving process using the list of users below.

Only the following users

Choose this option to include individual users (and thereby their MDaemon mailboxes) in the archiving process using the list of users below. Only the mailboxes of those users explicitly specified will be archived.

Synchronize with Active Directory before archiving

If selected, the MailStore user list will be synchronized with a directory service before any archiving process is executed. This has the advantage that, for example, new employees will be created as MailStore users before archiving, so once the archiving process is executed, their MDaemon mailbox is archived automatically as well. This option is especially recommended when the archiving process is to be executed regularly according to a schedule.

More information on how to execute archiving profiles can be found in chapter Email Archiving with MailStore Basics.

 


Archiving Incoming and Outgoing Emails Directly

The MDaemon mail server offers an easy way to deliver all emails to an MDaemon specific multidrop mailbox. MailStore Server archives this mailbox by means of an archiving task of type Archiving IMAP and POP3 Multidrop Mailboxes.

Step 1: Create a new account to be used as multidrop mailbox for archiving

 

Step 2: Create a new content filter rule for archiving

 

Step 3: Configuration of MailStore Server

 

For the TLS and SSL protocols only: You have the option to ignore SSL warnings. Generally, these warnings appear if an unofficial certificate is used on the server.
