Accurate Email Data Acquisition
Aid4Mail easily handles very large messages and attachments, and huge mailbox files. It often succeeds in extracting mail from corrupt mailboxes and fixing malformed emails. Aid4Mail can also restore deleted and unpurged emails from many mailbox formats and IMAP mail accounts.
Aid4Mail is one of the most accurate tools on the market when it comes to rebuilding mail. When programs like Outlook and Eudora receive an email, they alter and split it prior to saving in the mail store. Traditional forensics tools are often incapable of correctly putting the pieces back together. As a result, collected data is incomplete and searches miss relevant chunks of data.
Aid4Mail can rebuild emails, producing a format that is as faithful as possible with the original RFC message. Source metadata like SMTP header fields are recovered, status information and dates restored, and attachments and embedded contents copied back into the email.

Output Formats for Delivering and Filing Email Data
Aid4Mail offers several export options to ease the delivery and filing of collected email data. It can convert messages to PDF or HTML to facilitate file sharing with the court and legal teams. Aid4Mail can also create PDF/A-1a (Level A Conformance) files which are being adopted by federal courts in the U.S. as the standard format for electronic filing (CM/ECF systems).
If you need to analyze or process mail further using other tools, Aid4Mail can export messages to standard Outlook PST files, mbox (formatted for Windows, Mac, or UNIX/Linux), individual EML message files, CSV (supported by Microsoft Excel and most databases), XML, and more. Custom output formats can also be created with Aid4Mail’s powerful scripting capabilities.
Aid4Mail Console is a command-line edition that can be used to automate examination tasks and batch process email files and accounts. Unlike the wizard edition of Aid4Mail, the console edition can process multiple PST files unattended.
Aid4Mail Console is included in the price of Aid4Mail eDiscovery Service and is available as a bundled option with Aid4Mail Forensic.

“Aid4Mail scripted approach took just 8 hours to finish (!), which is almost impossible to compare with 23 hours of running time for Transend. On top of everything else, it looks like that Aid4Mail-generated PST files are way smaller than Transend-generated.”
