Computerworld, February 15, 2008

Although we feel we’ve hit this issue home in previous posts, it’s worth reiterating the importance of proper electronic record storage policies. As the author of this article points out, email must be considered a business document and must be handled in a way consistent with existing Records and Information Management (RIM) practices. In other words, email can’t just be shoved in an electronic storage space. Rather, it must be organized, properly labeled and stored in a manner that will allow an individual to easily access it in the future.
