Users fail to archive emails
TechWorld, August 28, 2008
In the mad-dash atmosphere that we all live in today, it’s common to hear the phrase, “I don’t have time.” Whether you’re talking about reading a new book, preparing a new dinner recipe or trying to squeeze in another meeting onto your calendar. Whatever it is, most of us find ourselves too strapped to add anything new to our schedules…even if were only to store away old lines of communication.
According to a survey commissioned by GFT Inboxx, more than half of the 260 respondents said that email archiving is too time-consuming. To make matters more interesting, three quarters of employees said they received no guidance on the requirements and methods for email storage and more than a third even said their company has no email policy.
For more than 50 percent of the respondents to say archiving takes to long, we can’t help but wonder how they came to that conclusion. Whether it’s because they’re not properly educated on the process and the risks of not archiving, we don’t know. What we do know is that we should all invest in the time to learn about email storage and the means by which we should protect our companies’ vital, irreplaceable information. Failing to do so will only lead to bigger, more expensive problems down the road.
