AMITPRO Meeting – Arden Hotel – 11.01.11

A reminder that this month’s AMITPRO meeting is held at The Arden Hotel in Solihull on Tuesday 11th January 2011.

If you’ve never visited a User Group before, or have visited and never followed up on that visit – why not make 2011 the year you take advantage of the opportunities a User Group offer?

Need persuading? Here are 3 Good Reasons to attend your local Microsoft Partner User Group Meeting that you should consider.


AMITPRO – 11.01.11

Zen Software

Neil Perry on MailStore email archiver.

Neil is one of the technical consultants at Manchester-based distributor Zen Software. He’ll be joining us to demonstrate the latest addition to their portfolio of products aimed at small businesses, MailStore email archiver.

MailStore installs alongside any email server taking a copy of all in and outgoing mails. By storing them in a secure database and making them available to users via a text search facility in Outlook, users need only keep 6 or 12 month’s mail (typically) in Exchange, which can present significant improvements in performance.

Zen claim MailStore’s big selling point over the other products you’re likely to have come across is its simplicity and ease of use. In order to demonstrate how easy it is to install and configure, Neil’s going to be walking through a typical deployment in an Exchange/ SBS environment and giving the opportunity to ask questions as he goes along.

In addition to the walkthrough he’ll outline the licensing model and some of the key target markets for the product.

These include:-

  • users with overloaded mailboxes (and those juggling PST’s locally)
  • financial and legal organisations who need long term storage to remain compliant with industry regulation
  • companies who require the ability to search emails being sent and received across the business and specific departments or users

Information available on Zen’s Web site here:-
