Configuring the MDaemon Archive feature

This article describes how to archive inbound and outbound mail.

MDaemon versions 16.0 and above will archive incoming/outgoing mail to a specific directory and no longer archive mail to public folders unless configured to do so.  MDaemon versions 15.5 and below cannot archive to any folder outside of the public folder directory.

While no longer view-able from the public folder directory, the MDaemon Queues & Statistics Manger has a Queue view to the Archive directory and its contents.

  1. Select Setup
  2. Select Server Settings
  3. Select Archiving
  4. Choose the directory to archive messages to (default is the \MDaemon\Archives directory).
    • Select Archive inbound mail to save a copy of all messages bound for local users to the archive directory.
      • Select ...archive based on recipient address if you want the inbound mail archive to be categorized by the recipient's email address.
      • Mailing list messages and messages containing a virus are not archived.
    • Select Archive outbound mail to save a copy of all messages of all outgoing messages from local users.
      • Select ...archive based on sender address if you want the outbound mail archive to be categorized by the sender's email address.
      • Mailing list messages and messages containing a virus are not archived.
    • Select Provide separate archives for each MDaemon domain to have separate sub-folders for each domain setup in MDaemon.
