Business Case: Email is now often used in place of legal documents for purchase orders, invoices and contracts. Many countries now have regulation in place requiring companies to archive email messages in the same manner as legal documents.
As a solution to the growing need for this Email archiving, the client wished to have a client/server application that would solve the problem of archiving when employees use different email clients.
Solution: Sitex developed a solution with a client service that employees must run on their PCs. As they work with their email client, to send/receive Emails, this service sends copies to the server component of the solution. This client works with Email clients Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes, and Novell Groupwise.
The server component organizes these emails into an archive and removes duplicates.
Tools and Technologies: Microsoft Visual C++
Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI)
