Make working with Office 365 much easier

by Mark Mulcahy

If your organisation currently uses Office 365 to store email, you may think it’s the best thing since sliced bread. Before you commit solely to this platform (in other words, put all your eggs in one basket), we’ve put together some tips that you may not be aware of and also how MailMeter can help – you can thank us later…

  1. You may need to check how secure your data is with Office 365

With all data being stored in a cloud facility and with Microsoft taking on the duty to keep emails secure, your IT guys may think to take a step back. However, this is something you should be careful about in terms of relying on a single vendor to keep all your archived emails safe. MailMeter keeps hold of all emails making sure you can easily manage single vendor dependency risks.

  1. You’re only paying to use a service so lost access can occur

If for any reason 0365 is cancelled, all of your data is deleted after just 90 days and the Office suite becomes read-only. MailMeter can ensure you have a robust system in place for any real time disaster recovery, meaning you can access emails outside of the Office 365 architecture.

  1. Integrity is key

Honesty in a business is essential so by employing the MailMeter software alongside Office 365, you’re able to ensure you have an archive of emails which cannot be interfered with.

  1. It’s important to take control of your email copies

Office 365 is responsible for the storage of your emails, yet MailMeter will allow you to secure an additional copy of all emails outside of the Microsoft infrastructure. Ensuring you have full control, this secure and encrypted data will be maintained by your organisation.

  1. Reporting features work best alongside MailMeter

As daily operations function through the Office 365 platform, it’s important to understand how effective your current email system is towards your business. MailMeter will enable you to analyse how your organisation uses email, which will then potentially highlight areas to improve.

  1. MailMeter’s EDiscovery Functionality will save you a bunch of time

Can’t quite find what you’re looking for with Office 365? MailMeter will give you the functionality to enable you to do a comprehensive search of your entire archived email library, even after it’s been deleted.

  1. Keep hold of content after an employee has departed

After an employee leaves your organisation, it can become an inconvenience when Office 365 deletes their mailbox. With MailMeter working alongside the Microsoft software, you’re able to keep hold of this information and retrieve it for whenever it may be needed.

Office 365 isn’t a last resort!
