Does ePADD also record email audit trails?

0 votes

Hello again,

I have read that in order to maintain the authenticity of an email it is important to have audit trails as part of the email's metadata. Is this something that ePADD does? or is this no longer a necessary step with email preservation?

thank you

ePADD does not currently include audit trail metadata. The software was initially built to fill a gap in the appraisal, processing, and provision of end-user access to email. We will be building additional support for preservation during the current grant period.

ePADD is a software package developed by Stanford University's Special Collections & University Archives that supports archival processes around the appraisal, ingest, processing, discovery, and delivery of email archives.
