Article: Access to MailStore embedded Database (ODBC)


Can the default built-in MailStore archive engine be addressed through ODBC? Alternately, can MailStore Export address an ODBC target?


There is no option or way to access the embedded MailStore archive engine / database through an ODBC interface, nor is there a way to export the MailStore export data via an ODBC connection into an external database. Background: MailStore uses a Firebird embedded SQL database. Since the database is locked and encrypted it is not possible for other tools to access this database.

Potential Alternative:
You may want to evaluate if an export into EML format can help you get access to email data and further processing.
