Object storage in the cloud has many advantages, including vast scalability, redundancy and availability. Object storage is a great fit for the archival of email data, since email data is discrete and immutable once delivered. As such, MailArchiva now supports archiving and backup to Blackblaze B2, Amazon S3/Glacier, EMC Atmos, OpenStack Swift, Azure Blob Storage, Azure Archival Storage, Rackspace Cloud Files and Minio object storage services.
Where emails are used as evidence in a court of law, it is often beneficial to verify their authenticity and integrity. Nowadays many mail servers digitally sign emails for the purposes of combating spam. In certain situations, these same signatures can used to establish the originating domain of email data, and whether or not the email data has been modified during transit from the originating domain to the recipients inbox. The authenticity reports include ARC, DKIM, SPF and SMIME signature checks.
Two factor authentication reduces the possibility of an attacker gaining access to an account. MailArchiva now offers two factor SMS authentication using Twilio as the service provider. This feature can also be adapted to satisfy the requirement that a supervisor approve access upon login by an auditor or administrator.
MailArchiva's queuing engine has been revamped for improved performance, throughput and reduced CPU consumption.
