7 Email Archiving Best Practices Every IT Pro Needs to Know

If your organization has a strong backup strategy in place, you may think you don’t need to bother with email retention. That is a common misconception, because on the surface, backing up emails and archiving emails seem like they serve the same purpose. In reality, the two are used for completely different functions, and you need to do both.

Email backups are primarily used for disaster recovery. The backup is essentially a snapshot of the data at a given time. When a new backup is deployed, the old backup is replaced, and the new version becomes the data that will be used for recovery. If emails are mistakenly deleted or corrupted just before a new backup is done, those emails are gone for good.

Microsoft identified a unique destructive malware operated by an actor tracked as DEV-0586

Microsoft is moving faster than most of the antivirus. They are publishing information about tracking a potential exploit in your system. Perhaps Microsoft’s publication is oriented for the Ukraine region. It won’t hurt if you look at that publication and check for their recommendation. Who knows if those files are already waiting for their activation at some point.
