MailRetriever's features include the following:

  • The ability to search and recover email in any Microsoft Exchange EDB. MailRetriever opens any EDB within a DPM recovery point and searches mailboxes, messages, calendars, tasks, notes and folders. Results can then be restored to the original location, a recovery folder or exported to a .PST file for portability in just seconds. Administrators can browse and search the entire EDB or just a specific mailbox to locate items such as messages, tasks, calendars and so on. After locating the desired item, you can perform a simple restore.
  • Perform e-discovery requests and then output to a .PST file for case analysis. Search for messages containing a keyword, phrase or user name, and MailRetriever will scan the entire EDB for messages that meet the selected criteria. You can then export the results to a folder or .PST file, satisfying the native file format requirement for e-discovery and compliance.
  • Integration with Data Protection Manager recovery points. MailRetriever's easy-to-use interface integrates directly with DPM's recovery points for fast message-level restores and recovery.
