Aid4Mail is a fast and highly accurate mail conversion program covering three main areas of expertise: email migration, email discovery (searching and data extraction), and email archiving. It is suitable for both small and large scale projects, from home use to large corporate migrations, and mission-critical forensic work.
Aid4Mail supports over 40 email client programs and mail formats, as well as many popular webmail services and remote accounts through IMAP. Recognized mail clients include Microsoft Exchange, Office Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, and Eudora. Typical mail files that Aid4Mail handles with ease include Outlook PST and MSG files, Outlook Express DBX files, generic formats like EML and mbox, and more. Using the IMAP protocol, Aid4Mail can access accounts hosted with popular services like Office 365, Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, AOL Mail, FastMail, and GMX Mail. Mail folders and files can be processed even when disconnected (unmounted) from their email client including those stored on CD, DVD, and USB drives.
The powerful search and data extraction features provided in the professional editions of Aid4Mail are used by e-discovery experts worldwide. The filter tool enables refined searches on emails using wildcards and even complex regular expressions if necessary. The integrated scripting language makes it possible to extract just about any imaginable information from emails, including header metadata.
Email archiving for long term data retention and legal compliance is another area in which Aid4Mail excels. All editions can export mail to a non-proprietary highly compressed ZIP file format or indexable EML files. Aid4Mail eDiscovery also offers the option to convert messages to PDF/A, an important electronic filing format used for long-term preservation of case-related documents.
