Archiving Email

My district is recommending that we save all Emails related to work. I don’t want to print and file all these. How do I manage this?

Your district is probably responding to the fact that work-related Emails have been subpoenaed in several recent court cases. There is a growing expectation that these communications will be archived and available upon demand.

Most Email programs offer a filing system for saving Email that has been read. Typically, you are able to create folders to organize the Emails for easy access later. Check with your district technical staff to find out if they’ve developed a recommended strategy for tackling this task.
