TORRANCE, Calif., December 19, 2006 — LiveOffice Corporation’s AdvisorMail division (, the leading provider of managed message archiving and compliance solutions, today announced a new Personal Mailbox Management option enabling employees to access their archived messages on a read-only basis at any time. The new feature increases employee productivity by enabling users to find historical or missing emails without waiting for IT staff searches; mitigates employee privacy concerns related to corporate email retention policies by demonstrating that archived messages cannot be tampered with; and frees IT staff from responding to most email search requests.

In addition, the web-based system offers advanced search and filtering capabilities that speed the process of locating messages that have been moved to the LiveOffice archive. Archive access is based on permissions or specific company retention policies. This strategy ensures that companies using the LiveOffice service meet email retention requirements, optimize the performance of their in-house mail server and reduce on-site storage costs, while providing access to archived messages without interrupting business workflow.

“With the rise in email retention programs that are being implemented to meet the e-discovery requirements of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), many employees fear that emails that have been moved to archives are out of their control,” said Stephen Uhring, vice president of business development for LiveOffice Corp. “AdvisorMail’s new Personal Mailbox Management feature can not only reduce that anxiety by allowing users to see for themselves that archived emails cannot be altered, but also provide important productivity benefits for the entire organization.”

LiveOffice’s message management and compliance solution aggregates all inbound, outbound, internal messages and attachments from an organization’s email and/or IM systems in an easily searchable database. The system’s e-discovery capabilities help companies comply with SEC, NASD, NYSE, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley and FRCP requirements related to the proper handling of email and/or IM (AOL, Yahoo!, MSN, and Bloomberg) communications. LiveOffice’s service is a highly scalable solution that can be deployed in companies with just one email account or implemented enterprise-wide.

LiveOffice’s Personal Mailbox Management is available now as an add-on to LiveOffice’s archiving and e-discovery solution. Pricing begins at $1/email address per month.
