Recently we blogged about ExchangeDefender Project: Inbox and we got a good amount of interest in the beta and just as many questions. We wanted to address the biggest one: What’s the difference between LiveArchive and this Inbox.

Pictured: ExchangeDefender Inbox inside the admin portal on a laptop.

The biggest difference is that Inbox is intended to be used as a primary user mailbox, while LiveArchive is meant as a failover for a user whose mailbox is elsewhere (Exchange, M365, Gmail, etc)

LiveArchive is a great service to rely on when something goes wrong – Inbox on the other hand is meant to be used all the time. LiveArchive is solely a web mail service – Inbox enables you to connect Outlook or mobile devices to it. LiveArchive is a separate web service to which users usually forget credentials or only login when things go down – Inbox is integrated in the admin app and is accessible one click away from the SPAM Quarantines that our users access daily.

They are both great solutions to different IT challenges: LiveArchive for when things go wrong, Inbox for everyday email use. Inbox has one other massive advantage to it that we’ll announce later this fall.

We expect to offer both with ExchangeDefender Pro to reduce support traffic (clients mail tracking requests caused by mail server issues: “It’s in the Inbox”) and because everything in IT can fail and it’s always prudent to have a failover/backup with LiveArchive.


We would like to invite our clients, partners, and enterprise users to a closed beta of Project: Inboxan affordable email solution that can be used as a standalone solution or in hybrid mode with M365 and G Suite.

If you are interested, please email client.services@exchangedefender.com along with a domain name you will be using for the beta test.

Our CEO recently held a webinar explaining the strategy behind this new service and it has been evolving ever since based on market feedback. Simply put, there is a huge market for affordable mailboxes that still meet the high end security and business requirements like top of the line email security, SSO, IMAP/Outlook/Mobile access, and still use the same domain name as the more expensive Exchange or Gmail office suites.

For an overwhelming majority of users within larger organizations, email is an absolute necessity but the average cost of $150/year/employee is putting a strain on IT budgets. Furthermore, the projected slowdown in the economy will make our clients more cautious about their IT spending. Our models show a trend of more users being mobile-first (with remote work being mobile-only) and a growth of service-related mailboxes is creating an opportunity to help us improve our clients security while reducing their service bill.

If this sounds like a winning opportunity for your business or your clients we hope you’ll join us in building something new and awesome. Those that help us out will enjoy the service for free for a while but we have a limited number of spots depending on industry and seat count so if you’re even remotely interested please email us as soon as possible.
