Why Your Company Can’t Afford To Lose Their Emails

08 February 2022

We’ve all been there before – someone accidentally deletes an email from the company Microsoft 365 server, or worse they were only stored locally.

Before you know it, you’re left with a pile of unanswered emails and limited ways to get them back. It’s no wonder that it can be very stressful when something like this happens to your business!

This article will explain the importance of having an email backup plan so that no important emails are lost.

Why your business should have an email backup plan

Many IT pro’s believe that it’s Microsoft’s responsibility to protect your Office 365 data.

While Microsoft 365 provides a wide array of powerful services within Office 365 – a comprehensive backup of your Office 365 data is not one of them.

With Office 365 it’s your data.

Veeam Data Management for Microsoft Office 365 eliminates the risk of losing access and control over your Office 365 data, including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, and Microsoft Teams, so that your data is always protected and accessible.

Save yourself hours/days or even weeks of data sorting!

Save yourself hours/days or even weeks of trawling through data and re-sorting by utilising a restorer function through Emerald by preserving the structure of data as well as the data itself.

Did you know that online email only has built-in MS Recovery features such as 30 days recovery which is great, but keep in mind that if you are 3 months down the line and realise an attachment or folder etc is missing or has been deleted accidentally you can’t then recover it using the built-in feature as it will be over the 30 days.

Common options that Emerald are able to help clients with are a 6 or 12 month recovery period.

Understanding Protection Against Viruses

Protection against viruses – corrupted docs can be restored but would just be the data (file) not necessarily sorted into folders as the client may have had them stored.  But with something like ‘Restorer’ it’s feature-rich – meaning more options are available. 

Email backup enables you to restore the folders NOT JUST the emails (which regular recovery would only do).
