Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 30, 2009 -- eFolder, Inc., a leader in providing branded online backup ( and local backup solutions, announced today a new email archiving and mailbox storage management service for Microsoft Exchange email servers. This new service allows eFolder's Partners to compete in the billion dollar email archiving industry by combining eFolder's award-winning backup technology with the ability to seamlessly store all archived email offsite in a secure location, as well as to actively manage mailbox storage requirements through message deduplication and automatic removal of content into secondary storage.

eFolder's new integrated backup and branded email archiving ( services provide secure email retention and restoration at the message level, full-text search of archived content, message deduplication, mailbox content migration based on quotas or message age, message stubbing and message removal.

The service is fully integrated into the eFolder Partner web portal, allowing eFolder Partners to monitor the status of all email archiving services right alongside the status of all backup services all on one screen.
