Message Archive Technical Information

Scroll Prev Top Next More

Messages are stored in the archive store in raw (EML) format, with a custom header. If a forensics company needs to access the messages it should not take much effort for them to work out how to strip the custom header information.

The custom header information consists of lines with a 2 character type indicator, followed by data. Some of the header fields which may be present are:

TY - type - POP3/SMTP - how the message was received by VPOP3

RP - SMTP return path

SU - subject

IP - IP address the message came from

TI - Timestamp in hex FILETIME format

RC - Recipient
