The Barracuda Message Archiver mobile application requires secure (HTTPS) connectivity to the Barracuda Message Archiver. If an insecure (HTTP) connection is attempted the mobile application is redirected to use https: with the configured secure port.

For existing mobile application users, if your URI was originally set up on an earlier firmware version, verify that the URI uses HTTPS. If the URI was set up using HTTP, use the steps in the section Configuration to update the URI. If the URI is not updated, users are automatically redirected to the secure, HTTPS protocol. This redirection may require an update to your network firewall rules to allow connectivity to complete on the secure port.

When using HTTPS connectivity, if a self-signed or private certificate is in place on the Barracuda Message Archiver, your mobile phone operating system (OS) may require you to accept the private certificate before you can download content with the mobile OS download utility. The mechanism to add a private certificate to your mobile device varies; please consult your manufacturer instructions for more information.

The Barracuda Message Archiver mobile application allows you to perform various actions with your messages that are stored on your organization’s Barracuda Message Archiver including:

  • Search for archived messages based on email content, or constrain the search to a date range, a specific sender or recipient, or subject line content;
  • Search deleted messages and emails no longer visible in your mail application;
  • View and interact with (reply to, reply all, forward) archived messages;
  • Save a search query;
  • Redeliver messages to your mailbox using the Resend to Me option.

These actions are available directly from your Android device, allowing transparent access to, and interaction with, your archived messages.

Only archived messages are available for search with the Barracuda Message Archiver mobile application; non-email items such as calendar entries and contacts are not included in search results.

Configuration

To search your archived mail from your Android device, you must first enter your organization’s Barracuda Message Archiver settings, as well as your email address and password. If you attempt to search archived messages before configuring the settings, an error displays.

You must enter the following details to configure the Android device:

  • Your corporate email address, and associated password, from which messages are archived
  • Barracuda Message Archiver hostname, for example: archiver.company.com

Download and install the latest Android Message Archive application available from the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps?hl=en

Once the application is installed, use the following steps to set up Archived Mail search.

  1. Launch Barracuda Archived Mail; the setup screen displays:

  2. Tap in the User field, and enter your email address from which to access archived messages. For example, enter:myname@company.com

  3. Tap in the Password field, and enter your password for the specified email address.
  4. Tap in the Host field, and enter your organization’s hostname or IP address. For example, enter: archiver.company.com or 192.168.200.200
  5. Confirm your settings, and tap Login.

Configuration is complete and you can now search your archived emails.

You remain logged in to Archived Mail even if you quit out of the application. If you want to log out of Archived Mail, tap the Archived Mail icon, tap Settings, and then tap Logout.

The Barracuda Message Archiver administrator can associate an LDAP user or group to a role and list of email addresses in the USERS > LDAP User Add/Update page. If addresses are excluded, and a configured user runs a search through the Barracuda Message Archiver Mobile Application, the following whitelist/blacklist rules apply:

  • If an address is excluded (blacklisted), the address does not display unless the mail includes the user performing the search to assure that a user can always see their own mail.
  • The exclusion rules always take precedence; addresses that are whitelisted are searchable only if the exclusion rules do not block the mail.
  • If a user is not configured and is a member of a group, then the blacklist/whitelist rules assigned to that group apply to that user.
  • If a user is assigned to a group, when the user logs in via the Outlook Add-In or Barracuda Message Archiver Mobile Application, only that user’s mail displays. For example, if an LDAP user has the Auditor role, mail available to the Auditor role does not display.
