Archived Emails Cast Harsh Light on Peanut Executive

Once again the importance of archiving email is revealed in the recent scandal involving tainted peanut butter and the executive who issued orders to ship peanut products that tested positive for salmonella. See, for example, this Wall Street Journal article. Internal company emails were examined by the House Energy and Commerce Committee to reveal the truth.

The article underscores the importance of archiving email for its business content. For matters of business content, intellectual property, and as a record of written statements made by employees, all companies must adopt an email policy for retention and consider carefully how they will respond to investigations and requests for email records. An email archival solution is designed to retain email and make it accessible for quick search and discovery.
