Itsan archiving solution for emails from usually hosted Google paid accounts.

If you are looking to backup emails and is using Outlook as a client, the EdgeSafe PST2PST Backup should  be suitable for your enterprise email backup. Take a look at http://www.datamills.com

Postini is a suite of email security and compliance services.  Google bought Postini in 2007 and sells Postini's products under the brand of Google Postini Services.  The brand includes several services and work with Google Apps as well as most any in-house email solution.

Google Message Security:  Spam and virus protection (inbound & outbound) with policy-based TLS encryption and custom filter options.

Message Archive & Discovery:  Email archive and e-discovery service designed for compliance with SEC, S/OX, subpoena delivery, legal discovery, and other rules and regulations.  It can be used to restore individual emails that have been deleted, but is not designed for general backup and recovery.  2 versions exist:  1 year retention and extended retention (2 to 10 yrs).

Google Message Discovery:  Message Security + Archive and Discovery

Google Message Encryption:  Message level encryption for HIPAA and other requirements with a choice of customer portal or end user inbox delivery (powered by Zix)

Google Message Continuity:  A service for in-house Exchange users that provides fully synchronized access to email via Gmail in the case of server or network outage or down time.

postini is google anti spam service it cost but is very effective as it can spool emails(if you email server goes down up to 1gb), scan for virus before it get to your server.
easy setup , all users get daily update which emails have been quarantined and if they want them delivered.

Google Medsage Secutrity is included in the $50 per user fee for Google Apps.  When used with internal email servers, there is a fee.

All other Postini services have fees.

If you are running Google Apps for Business, Google Message Security is included at no charge.  If you add Archive & Discovery and/or Message Encryption, there are additional costs.


If you are running an in-house Exchange server, Notes server, or other in-house email server, there is an annual fee for Google Message Security and all of the other Postini services.
