New: MailStore Server 9
Integrated Task Scheduler
MailStore Server 9 has an integrated task scheduler that greatly simplifies the creation and execution of
archiving tasks. All tasks for archiving email servers were previously created in the Windows Task Scheduler
of the system on which the client was running by the MailStore Client software. MailStore Server now controls
these types of archiving tasks, completely independently and centrally. In addition, the administrator no
longer needs to set execution intervals; MailStore Server automatically defines the optimal scheduling for
all available tasks.
Improved Email Preview with HTML View
MailStore Web Access and the Outlook add-in now also offer an HTML preview and can display archived emails
in a fashion similar to what youâ€™re used to seeing in Microsoft Outlook. A whitelist-based HTML sanitizer,
specifically developed for MailStore, provides the necessary security. Moreover, the display of recipients
and file attachments has been significantly improved; this includes MailStore Client, too.
Auto Update of the MailStore Client
As of Version 9, the MailStore Client software no longer needs to be manually updated when you update the
server (from Version 9.0 to 9.1). MailStore Client and the Outlook add-in are automatically updated using
the auto update feature. A manual or group policy controlled update of the client components is only
necessary again in certain situations when upgrading the main version (for example, from 9.x to 10).
Maximum Transparency: Auditing 2.0
MailStore Server 9 can write event types defined by the administrator not only in the Windows event log
but also in the form of text files in a directory in the file system. MailStore Server 9 also has a
special viewer with many sorting and filtering features, allowing the files to be easily accessed and
Greatly Increased Archiving Performance
MailStore Server analyses every email that has been received during archiving and checks whether it has
already been archived in order to prevent duplicates in the archive. The time required for this process
varies and depends on the number of mailboxes to be archived, the volume of received email, and the size
of the existing archive.
The diagram shows the measurement results when archiving 148 IMAP mailboxes with 25 simultaneous threads and a
total of 902,716 emails to be checked. MailStore Server 8 required 25:39 minutes. MailStore Server 9
required 8:12 minutes.
The intelligent caching system and a new store hinting algorithm implemented in MailStore Server 9 allow
mailboxes for Exchange EWS and IMAP to be archived at a much faster rate. At the same time, the new
archiving methods allow the CPU resources of modern systems to be used more efficiently and significantly
reduce network traffic and the workload of the email server.
Powerful Message List
The MailStore Clientâ€™s message list, which lists search results or displays the content of a folder in
the archive, was completely revised. It can now effortlessly display hundreds of thousands of elements.
The message lists of MailStore Web Access and the add-in for Outlook have also been optimized so that
the results continue to load automatically when scrolling.
New Lock Manager
A newly developed lock manager in MailStore Server 9 ensures that the internal standby modes are
reduced to a minimum. This allows a fluid interaction with the system, even in high load situations,
and results in an improved user experience.
Optimized Backup and Restore
MailStore Server 9â€™s integrated backup feature now also writes a *.csv file in which the original
storage location is retained. The backup can be restored to the productive environment with minimal
effort via a batch file, which is also automatically generated. The MailStore Server service now
also supports the commands â€˜PAUSEâ€™ and â€˜CONTINUEâ€™ to simplify the creation of snapshots as an
alternative to using VSS snapshots.
