GFI MailArchiver is a product used for email archiving which uses a SQL database as backend storage. Deployment differs depending on the version of the product. The AM(X) can be deployed as:
- An AMX for Neverfail for Exchange (for GFI MailArchiver version 2 and a locally installed SQL database)
- An AMX for Neverfail for SQL Server (for GFI MailArchiver version 3, requires a connection to the Exchange server)
The AM(X) protects all the GFI MailArchiver services and all the required configuration information.
This is a list of all services protected by this AM(X). Please note that where an AM(X) supports multiple vendor versions, some services may not be present in a particular version.
- MailArchiver Attendant (MailArchiverAttendant) (v2)

When the AM(X) is installed, all protected services will be set to manual, unless otherwise stated.
This is a description of the protected data set that was determined at AM(X) install time. Please note that exact filters will be based on the configuration of the application at the moment that the AM(X) was installed.

Automatic Filter Discovery
