Although it is an efficient means of communication, difficulties may arise concerning the legal compliance or when the recovery of certain information is attempted.
Challenges and problems
- The increase of the necessary storage capacity
- The continuous efforts of the IT personnel within enterprises to limit the volume and size of e-mails
- Opposition from users who wish to keep all the e-mails and attachments in the inbox
- The increase of the storage capacity on the electronic messaging server is just a temporary solution.
- The size of the e-mail data bases usually reaches hundreds of gigabytes
- High storage and management costs
- Difficult and consuming process for accessing information stored on magnetic tapes
- Increase in the number of personal archives
- The deployment of certain strict policies aiming to reduce the e-mail inbox quota means a large number of personal archives (.PST files)
