Business Continuity

You rely heavily on email to do business. You might manage a few minutes without email—but what about a few hours or a few days?

This includes:

  • A 24x7 emergency inbox to provide users email access when the normal mail environment is unavailable
  • Instant replay to send (or resend) messages to your messaging server for 30 days
  • Email spooling and failover
