Expertly preserve email evidence without breaking a sweat. Get plug & play output for digital forensic investigations and eDiscovery.
Powerful & Intuitive
Forensic Email Collector is a powerful tool-it can forensically acquire emails from Exchange Servers, Office 365, Gmail, G Suite, and virtually any IMAP server with many output options and detailed logs. It is also remarkably intuitive. You can get started in just a few minutes and preserve emails and documents your efforts with a few clicks.
Forensic Email Collector can connect to most popular email servers and cloud email providers. You are not stuck with IMAP or POP for forensic email preservation.
We all run into cases where collecting a mailbox as a whole is not an option-often due to privacy or timeframe concerns. On the other hand, eDiscovery and digital forensics workflows often involve a full collection, followed by post-acquisition searches.
Forensic Email Collector solves this problem in a creative way by allowing examiners to search mailboxes on the server side prior to the acquisition and download only the search results. No need to create labels, tag, documents, or make any changes to the target mailbox

As soon as you start an acquisition, Forensic Email Collector captures snapshots of each mail folder. The snapshots are used to keep track of which mail folders and messages have been downloaded.
If you run into a network error or if the server throws a fit-free email providers are notorious for throttling large scale downloads, FEC automatically retries remaining messages as many times as you want, calculating an optimal delay amount between each retry session.
Mailbox snapshots are persisted in a database. So, you can even stop the acquisition and resume it later by loading a past project.
Calendars, Contacts & Notes
Forensic Email Collector doesn’t stop at emails. You can also forensically acquire events from Google Calendars and appointments, contacts, and notes from Exchange servers.
Just like emails, these items can be exported in MSG and PST formats in addition to generic formats such as iCalendar (.ics) and vCard (.vcf) depending on item type.
