Needles MAIL searches and deduplicates e-mail. For complex e-mail migration projects and cases where companies have date-time metadata discrepancies, Needles MAIL has the ability to de-duplicate based on time variance, subject, to, from, cc, bcc and body length fields.
“Real-life” use case: E-mail had been produced for 18 months to the DOJ by a pharmaceutical company. When additional mail was found in an archive, Quantum used Needles MAIL to deduplicate 2.5TB of e-mail against the previously-produced mail (which had differing forms of addresses and slightly different sent times). Needles MAIL saved the company hundreds of thousands of dollars in processing and attorney review fees.
