I'm keen to cut down on the amount of tools I have to use and monthly licensing! - I have seen the Official Microsoft product (https://products.office.com/en-gb/excha ... ving-email
) along with Exchange plan 2, but, it raises the question of who owns the data and will Microsoft support accidental deletion etc. (e.g. the whole point of wanting an external backup)
If Veeam can do everything - then that is great.
At the moment, I have a customer in finance who needs a 100% record of all communications stored for 6 years (I think it is, off the top of my head) - at the moment, we use a third party service that has the MX record and stores all mail before delivering to Exchange. IF we need, we can do a full search at any time on sent/received messages and recover.
I know Veeam specialises in backup and without integrating a mailserver, I am not really sure how you would achieve this - but, if there is some way to "hook" in to Exchange deeper, backup the mail flow logs and keep a 100% record, that would be awesome.
