Email retention is an increasingly complicated business. From regulations for various industries to new GDPR legislation, email retention requirements seem to become more complex each year. In addition to fulfilling compliance requirements, email retention is critical to managing mailbox sizes and storage solutions for volumes of email that continue to grow exponentially.
