Google Tacks On 10 More Years To E-Mail Archiving Program

Aimed at businesses that need to retain and store e-mail, Google has added 10 more years to its e-mail archiving service, Google Message Discover. "Regulations and guidelines like the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure put pressure on IT organizations to ensure that e-mail is properly retained and can be reliably located and preserved in the event of legal discovery," Google said in a company blog. "Coupled with the growing importance of e-mail as a store of intellectual property, e-mail archiving has become both legally necessary and critical to the operation of your business."

According to a Google whitepaper, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure applies "to virtually all organizations, in all industries, including private, public and non-profit organizations. In short, if an organization can have a civil lawsuit filed against it, then the FRCP should figure prominently in that organization's data management strategy."
