Corporate Counsel Guide: E-Discovery Email Management


E-Discovery Considerations for Better Email Management Considering Email Retention and Email Overload

In response to industry concerns, Stanley M. Gibson, Partner at Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP, published a corporate counsel guide to identify the most important criteria to control the cost of e-discovery by minimizing the volume of electronic records — the vast majority of which are e-mails — that are kept by the company. There are various ways to reduce the volume of e-mail, including imposing mailbox size restrictions and requiring mandatory deletion periods. But there are also novel, technological approaches to eliminating the over-retention of e-mail that present a significant advantage over size restrictions or deletion policies. It concludes that RPost, with its Registered Email™ service is a comprehensive solution that meets all of the noted criteria.
