Citadel.org journaling for email compliance

Art Cancro writes "The
project has announced the release of version 6.70 of its
popular open source groupware and
collaboration platform. This release introduces message journaling,
an important feature that allows all messages and other
communications to be recorded to a destination chosen by the system
administrator or compliance officer, allowing Citadel systems to be
used in environments which are required to retain messages for
compliance with industry regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA.

Citadel's new journaling function
integrates seamlessly into the archival solution of your choice,
preserving important envelope information so that a compliance
officer will be able to tell from the archive exactly who in the
organization received or sent a copy of any given message. Non-email
content such as instant messages, calendar items, and posts to public
rooms (folders) can be journaled as well.

WebCit, the web-based front end to the Citadel system, has been updated as well.
The new version includes an AJAX-powered instant messenger window,
which provides an application-like interface to Citadel's built-in
instant messenger system. Real-time chats with other users are now
presented in an intuitive tabbed window which is similar in look and
feel to popular desktop instant messaging clients.
