Having worked in this industry as an independent, as part of a small company, and as part of one of the global names, I absolutely assure you that an assumption that only a "name brand" or big firm can service your need, or that a name brand will give you superior service, is WAY errant thinking. One thing you can be almost sure of with the big names, however, is a bill that matches the size of their corporate ego. :-)

With all that said, how much email are you trying to recover? What kind of system is it from? (Exchange? Something else?) And why do you say "recover?" Is it currently in a deleted state? How many custodians? How is the email presently stored?

ChopOMatic you are probably correct bigger is not always better.  To make a long story short, exchange emails sent to our 3rd party email vault through our hub server were not properly encoded and therefore about 10-20% of those emails have a garbed body.  (unfortunately it was kinda our fault)We are talking about trying to to cull through 3.5 million emails which 10-20% have a problem.  Plus we have a time constraint.  

The email that is on our servers are fine.


Already been there and done that.  Most of those companies want to recovery your disk system.  Did various terms recovery, corrupted mail, etc...  Spent much of last night and today doing it.  Many of the people I contacted had no idea where to start.  Need people who do software development to probably write a custom filter that will cull through the volume of email

Sounds like a somewhat unique problem, V, which I know isn't news to you. :-(  

Is the corruption uniform, something you're pretty sure can be addressed programmatically? 3.5MM is certainly no trivial number, but should be manageable enough. Any idea how many GB/TB you're talking about? I'll be mulling it to see if anyone comes to mind to refer you to on it.
