  • Quick email search capabilities.
  • Ability to view an old email within the archive without having to download it.
  • Great E-discovery capabilities as users do not have the ability to delete emails perpetually
  • Easy to use and manage
  • On the archive, all emails are highlighted hence you will not know when you have an unread email that you might have accidentally deleted on outlook but was automatically archived in Mimecast

  • Archiving
  • Spam filtering
  • The spam filtering sometimes holds up important emails from domains that should be whitelisted.
  • When first starting to use the platform it was confusing between perm and delete and the different options available

  • Archive and enforce mail retention policies on on-premise exchange server
  • Integration with existing email system
  • Good web interface and mobile client to access and execute email functions
  • The policies to implement archiving integration are not very intuitive. It could possibly be improved in its implementation but it does work reliably.
  • The web interface for mail is a little more on the basic side, could possibly look to add more features over time to improve the user experience.
  • The process to get existing data into the archived mailboxes from another system is very time consuming and painful. Not sure if an easier way could be developed for this process as it was the way it was to eliminate errors and duplication.
  • Took a long time to migrate old archived data to this system, which could be a hindrance for people moving away from an existing platform.

  • Easy to manage and deploy/migrate to.

  • Allows comprehensive searching by sender, receiver, date, metadata and search terms.
  • Can export and deliver identified email from searches in a number of ways.
  • Is extremely reliable. Catches all email and stores it for as long as the customer desires.
  • Can save searches so that they can easily be recalled later.
  • Keeps a comprehensive usage log to identify all actions taken with it.
  • Has a good Outlook integration feature.
  • Can act as a backup to regular email, should it fail.
  • The system runs slowly at times.
  • There are so many features, it can be difficult to find exactly how to perform some actions.
  • Emails are not automatically shown in their native format when searched you must click on the email and then request it be formatted in the proper format (HTML, plaintext, etc.).

  • Message archiving is essential in healthcare and Mimecast makes it easy and at a reasonable cost. One of the features we appreciate most is the search function. Outlook can be pretty frustrating when it comes to searching for messages and Mimecast adds plenty of filtering and search capabilities that help find what Outlook can't.
  • Targeted Threat Protection (TTP) is a great service that proxies URL's in email and adds an extra layer of protection against malicious attachments. The addition of TTP a couple years ago demonstrates Mimecast's continued development to meet modern threats.
  • Online mailbox can be used for email continuity if your mail server is down. We don't have frequent downtime but it's good to know communications can keep flowing if we do.
  • Support is always helpful and timely.
  • I have few comments recommending improvement but if I have to nitpick I'd say the admin console can be a bit confusing. I don't think it's so much their product, rather email is more complicated than most realize.
  • My biggest gripe, and it's minor, is that we still can't get events logged in our time zone. I've been told that's coming but still haven't seen it. I'm pretty capable of subtracting 1 hour though so I'm not too worked up about it.

  • It archives every email into and out of your enterprise including mail between internal users. This provides a legally acceptable archive that we can access at any point to find emails whether we need just one from a year ago or a lot to enter into a court case.
  • Since we have our MX record pointing to them first, they host all of our email in the cloud so users can access it even in the event our local email repository is down. We used this feature quite well during this past years Hurricane season.
  • Mimecast has a feature that allows me to sandbox all links, in emails, before users are redirected to them. This has saved us several times in that users clicked on links they should not have but Mimecast intercepted the request and stopped the user from going to the site.
  • Although many people seem to love it, I think their search capability takes some getting used to. It works and you can find anything you need but it is not as clean as if searching in Outlook.
  • When an incoming domain is on the Mimecast's blacklist the email is totally blocked and there is no notification of this so if a user tells me they are not getting email from somewhere I sometimes have to assume this is the issue and go the extra step and add that domain to a white list not knowing if it will really solve the issue.
  • The Large File send options in outlook work fairly well but if one is sending a dozen files the receiver SHOULD get an option to download them all into one size but they do not. Instead they have to download each file individually.
  • Some of their new client releases can cause issues so you must test the clients well and usually stick with a good one when you get one that works well in your environment.
