preserving email for legal issues
Posted on 2009-05-12
Our company is currently involved in some litigation with an employee. We have email that will help our case. We backup all users' email to the network disk. Our lawyer is trying to get us to talk to some company that does electrnonic forensics. I feel we don't need that kind of service. It seems to me that our back of email should be just find in court. Is there something I am not aware of regarding backups? Does the original date on the file get changed somehow ont the file where it would not hold up in court? What would be the best way to electronically copy portions of the email file for our legal case?
