- 3. What happens when I have setup archiving for all the licensed number of users?21.11.16More
As you are approaching the maximum allowed count of users (as per your purchase), the system will send you alerts prompting you to take action. If you use up the licensed count of users, the system will not allow you to provision more users. The choices you have are to:
1. To purchase additional user licenses in your subscription
2. Delete some accounts to free up license space.
- 4. Which plan is appropriate for me?21.11.16More
If you want to use the Vaultastic archive to serve as a short term backup, reduce the load on IT and increase the efficiency of users to search for historical email data, then the CONTINUITY plan should suffice.
If you work in an industry when email archiving is a legal compliance or there are many cases of litigation, then the TRACER plan may be more appropriate.
The DURABILITY plan is the most appropriate when you want to store historical data with Vaultastic and retain mails forever.
The HOLD plan is suitable if you need to save mail for users who are no longer active.
Need a custom plan(s) based on a diffferent retention period, please contact us with your requirement and we are happy to assist.

Any usage beyond these limits is billed on a prorata basis in arrears on the month end.
For active users of your enterprise, the Vaultastic licensing model is a per user license with retention period as the main critirion differentiating the various plans. So each user on your primary mail platform gets a corresponding Vault (Vaultastic account) to hold all the email of that user. You may choose between the 3 plans of Continuity, Tracer or Durability for that user. You can also mix plans to suit the role of the users.
For inactive users or ex-employees, Vaultastic provides a storage based licencing plan, HOLD, which retains mail of all your inactive users in a single vault, limited only to the amount of storage purchased for the HOLD plan.
