Backups for Courier, Cyrus, and Dovecot

The IMAP server is fully integrated into the SEP client and managed through the single management interface. Thanks to SEP's integrated encryption technology, stored data is reliably protected from unauthorized access, which can be particularly vital if tapes are removed from storage.

All necessary components are included in the SEP client.  As infrastructure grows, extensions may be added to support new devices and operating systems, foregoing a new install. With incremental backups, storage volume is significantly reduced and resources can be maximally utilized. Users also have the flexibility to combine disk and tape backups.

Using the SEP IMAP module, the IMAP server is fully integrated into the enterprise-wide backup solution and managed through a single management interface. More than 70% of a company's data can be stored in emails and mail-systems' storage utilities for business relevant data and information. Utilizing integrated encryption technology from AES and Blowfish, stored data is protected from unauthorized access, which is particularly important if tapes are removed from storage.

Disaster Recovery

The SEP Bare Metal Recovery module for IMAP executes a complete recovery of the IMAP server, including its operating system, in minutes. This also applies to everything from the partitioning of hard drives and creating of the bootloader (also multiboot), to the installation of all operating systems and programs.


With the SEP management interface, a single email or complete mailbox can be restored within seconds. The SEP restore wizard allows users to restore their selected items at the original destination path or any destination of their choosing. During backups and restores, no interruptions occur within the mail system when receiving or sending emails.
