Email Journal Migration :


Preserve historic email journals


If you’ve been journaling emails on-premises or in an external cloud service, don’t get trapped into costly maintenance and subscription fees.

We can seamlessly migrate your journals to a new platform, ensuring you meet compliance needs and that your mail records are fully discoverable post-migration.


The benefits of using our journal migration service

Protect what gets moved

Our service will ensure your journals are fully preserved and protected as they’re migrated:

  • Maintain full chain-of-custody
  • Get a full inventory of what’s been moved
  • Preserve meta data such as BCC’d recipients & distribution list members (DLs)
  • Ensure everything is discoverable post-migration.

Understand your journal to Microsoft 365 migration options

Did you know there is no equivalent of a journal in Microsoft 365?

We will explain your migration options and the benefits of each approach, including how to handle journals belonging to leavers and how to ensure accurate eDiscovery and retention.

Capture more than just email

You may want to extend your journaling to include the capture of other messaging sources such as Microsoft Teams chat, WhatsApp and the myriad other platforms that may now be in use by your hybrid workforce.

We can help you create a centralised service that allows messaging taking place across multiple channels to be analysed.
