    Default open source email archiving software?

    I am trying to find a quality and still maintained open source email archiving solution. Unfortunately the zimbras archiving solution is just a bit to expensive for my taste at $24 per user. Not sure what the partner pricing is though as my provider doesnt offer the ZAD licenses. Probably one that works as a smtp proxy is best, though I am really not on the admin side of things, so I could be wrong. The only project I know of so far that comes with a web gui is MailArchiva Email Archiving & Email Compliance Features, but its open source version is pretty limited. Ive googled quite a bit and havent found much, so just figured I would ask here in case someone knew of something I might have missed that was good.

    I've used mailArchiva (and recommended it in these forums) and the feature set is perfectly adequate unless, of course, you need some of the features of the Enterprise Edition. If that's not suitable for your needs you could always use the Postfix always_bcc option to send a copy to another mail server.

    I use the "email addresses hidden from user" feature and forward emails to user@backup.domain.com.

    You can also use the Legal Intercept feature built into Zimbra.

    Ditto from me as well for both options, though recipient_bcc_maps is a more flexible equivalent in postfix.

    Default Enkive

    You should also check out Enkive. Enkive

    We've piloted it successfully at a mid-sized academic organization that uses Zimbra, leveraging the always_bcc mechanism in Postfix. It's free software, has full-text search, de-duplication, and a lot of other useful features, too.

    Default Oma

    I would suggest OMA, though I'm not sure it's still actively developped ;-)

    I second MailArchiva! I've used both the OSE and Pay for versions. And, it works quite well with Zimbra.

    Can you please tell us how you achieved a connection between enkive and postfix always_bcc ?

    I went and looked at Enkive. It seems extremely limited when compared with MailArchiva.

    They do have an OSE version if cost is an issue.
