    This is great question, as I've been wondering how people meet gov.
    requirements on storing corp. emails with Postfix.
    As it is our problem is that some people use POP3 and delete as they
    download (I've been fighting this for years, but I can't control the
    foreign office!).
    Anyhow.... Even with IMAP, although most mail is saved, still there is
    they can delete emails from Trash and then those emails are lost.

    If all mail were just sent to another address, then it would make it
    difficult to find emails in the event we need to recover specific ones.
    It seems like there should be a way to say, regardless of whether
    someone wants to delete -- well, don't delete it from the server. Maybe
    do something else with it within the same users profile. I don't know.
    I should note that we are not a large company. Only 60-odd employees
    worldwide. And the budget for me to have continual backups doesn't
    exist. We do nightly backups using BackupPC. So we have about a weeks
    retention.

    Any ideas are most welcome, but please take into consideration our
    constrictions (budgetary).
