Discussion of Radicati Group Study that predicts over $2.3 billion market growth for archival vendors over the coming four years, as companies seek to ensure "internal policy complaince" ... Quote: Vinu Jacob, senior messaging engineer for the New York-based law firm Willkie, Farr & Gallagher, said that his IT department uses an e-mail archiving system to manage the deletion of e-mails after a set period of time. "We basically have a compliance issue where we are actually protecting the company against discovery orders," Jacob said. "We have a 30-day policy on e-mail retention." Jacob said that his firm gets 50,000 e-mail messages a day. Before purchasing e-mail archiving software, e-mails were deleted manually using a native Microsoft Exchange utility. "This was a very difficult and onerous task," Jacob said.
