On which machine should I install GFI MailArchiver?
GFI MailArchiver should be installed on a machine that forms part ofthe Active Directory domain whilst taking into consideration thefollowing points:

Need to archive email from multiple sources concurrentlyFor example, if you only need to archive email from one mail serversource, for instance Exchange Server, and the server is handling theemail flow on your network and still has spare processing capacity,then you can choose to install GFI MailArchiver on the ExchangeServer machine directly. On the other hand, if you want to archiveemail from multiple mail servers, including non-Exchange Serversusing the IMAP protocol, we suggest that you install GFI MailArchiveron a separate machine.
GFI MailArchiver does not require a dedicated machine whenit is not installed on the mail server. For example, you can, install GFIMailArchiver on machines running other applications such as GFIMailEssentials or GFI MailSecurity.The machine on which you choose to install GFI MailArchiver needs tohave Internet Information Services (IIS) and the World Wide WebService installed and running, with ASP.NET registered, since GFIMailArchiver needs to create a virtual directory to host the GFIMailArchiver web interface.
