Email management systems centrally capture emails created and received by employees. Using a classification scheme to manage this content, retention periods and access controls can be applied to manage emails. Metadata associated with the emails can be captured to allow this information to be managed and retrieved. Email active archiving is one of the most common applications for email management. At their most basic, these solutions either copy or remove messages from the messaging application and some it at another location. Some approaches copy all messages coming into and out of the messaging application in real time, while others will physically remove the messages from the message store. In some of these solutions, the messages are not archived, but attachments are and are replaced with either a stub or an outright link within the message.
