    Email from someone at Symantec who requested anonymity

    H&S – Me too product. Zero innovation, Not even copied the good ideas of the market. No unique selling point except maybe license cost (which is the least compelling thing when buying an archive solution).

    I hear H&S is extremely litigious, and sues people for making comments they don’t like.

    I would have thought price to be one of the most compelling aspects of an email archiving solution provided it has a full feature set. I have tested 5 separate products over the last 2 months and found very little to distingush one from the others except support response times and price. Just to be clear: these were all so-called enterprise archiving products for an organization with over 7000 seats. I am also a little confused as to who has done what here – can you elucidate? One post seems to have a very tenuous link to the other. We are yet to make our decision on our email archiving solution but will keep an eye on any rising stars.

    H&S when I looked at it could not really do journaling, they use Event sinks in the Echange store instead. This is so error prone that you should seriously consider the impact of this.

    Also I would stay away from any solution that does not allow you properly export the data back into PSTs.
    Our company is involved in a couple of archive migrations and some product are nearly impossible to migrate.

    Please look again, exchange@PAM has always provided complete support for Exchange journaling. You are correct, optionally you can also use Event sinks, but journalling is completely supported.

    Also, your comment regarding exporting is also incorrect. exchange@PAM allows both users (if given the needed privileges) and the administrator the ability to export to a PST.

    You also might want to look again at your last comment, unsure what you would find impossible or even difficult about doing a migration.

    Daniel, I would be happy to talk with you directly to explain our capabilities.

    With regard to H&S being litigious.

    The company has never taken any legal action of this nature. Perhaps you have comfused us with someone else.
