How it works
Spambrella leverages Microsoft Exchange journaling function to copy all internal, outbound and inbound email. This includes the original email and sending information (such as sender, recipients, CC/BCC, and group membership). Whether you use Google, Exchange or Office 365, simply enable journaling and direct email traffic to Spambrella. From there, Spambrella processes and stores the email according to your retention policy. Data stays under management until it is disposed according to your retention setting. Archived “at rest” data is encrypted using your unique encryption keys.
Spambrella Email Archive helps protect you from legal liability and regulatory risks while improving email storage management and end-user productivity. Email messages are stored in a centralized archive accessible from any web browser by clicking on the ‘Sign in to your account’ link on the email quarantine digest. Designated users can access their archive, search for and read the full history of their email communications, or retrieve past communications and forward them to others.
Regulatory requirements, court requests for e-discovery (Subject Access Requests), and industry standards are having a profound effect on how businesses manage electronic communications. Failing to adequately store and retrieve emails may lead to penalties, fines, and legal consequences such as destruction of evidence charges and adverse judgements. For many, being able to properly monitor, store, and retrieve email messages is now as important as keeping financial records tidy.
Easy to implement, manage and use, Email Archiving from Spambrella is a scalable, reliable and secure service with no set-up fees. Built on a highly reliable and scalable SaaS platform, Email Archiving can be deployed immediately and requires no upfront hardware or software investment. Email Archiving, together with our Email Filtering and Email Continuity, rounds out a complete solution for all your messaging needs.

Active Directory (LDAP Discovery)
The preferred method of user synchronization is via LDAP Discovery using Spambrella’ Active Directory connector module. This allows the Spambrella Platform to import:
To configure Active Directory connection settings:
End User: Receive the quarantined digest and can login to the Spambrella user interface.
Silent User: Receive the quarantine digest and are not granted access to login to the Spambrella user interface.
For example, DC=mycompany,DC=local
The Active Directory configuration is stored in the customer creation process and is executed by the administrator once the customer has been created. Active Directory sync requires the customer to allow Spambrella to access the environment over Port 389. Connections are over TLS. Please refer to the Spambrella Support Knowledge Base for the current list of Spambrella IP addresses.
At the end of this process you will have saved your Active Directory Connection details. If you have selected to sync data every 24 hours the system will perform the sync automatically. If not you will need to force the sync process.
To sync Active Directory:
Review the returned results.
If you have large amounts of email to load and an Internet connection with limited bandwidth, the time required to prepare and ship a portable storage device to Spambrella can be a small percentage of the time it would take to transfer your data over the internet. If loading your data over the Internet would take a week or more, you should consider using Archive Bulk Import/Export Services.
Below is a table that gives guidance around common internet connection speeds on: (1) how long it will take to transfer 1TB of email data over the Internet into Spambrella Archive platform (see the middle column for this estimate); and, (2) what volume of total email data will require a week to transfer over the Internet into Spambrella, and therefore warrant consideration of Archive Import/Export services (see the right-hand column). For example, if you have a 10Mbps connection and expect to utilize 80% of your network capacity for the email data transfer, transferring 1TB of email over the Internet to will take 13 days. The volume at which this same set-up will take at least a week, is 600GB, so if you have 600GB of email or more to transfer, and you want it to take less than a week to get into Spambrella, we recommend you use Archive Bulk Import/Export Services.
The Spambrella Archive service does not provide a direct journaling service. Journaling is done on the mail server side with our service. Customer will need to gather the messages on their mail server side, by collecting the messages as designed by their journaling system.
The Spambrella system will only pass messages that are defined as not spam and contain no identified viruses to your mail server. Any messages caught as spam are quarantined, and once released, will be subject to your journaling rules.
As the Spambrella system for outbound mail is optional, we suggest putting rules in place on your mail servers/network to journal email prior to leaving your network.
For Microsoft Exchange users, we suggest reading up on Journaling found on the Technet Library:
You will need to navigate through the Exchange environment and choose the proper Exchange version. The journaling is found under different topic areas pending your version. We found topics under Messaging Policy and Compliance, as well as Operations. For further assistance, please contact Microsoft directly for support on your Exchange system in regards to Journaling.
Other Mail Servers
For journaling on your mail server please contact the support of your mail server to see if journaling is available.
