This article describes the process to change the date and time when GFI Archiver checks if emails are being archived or not.
By default, GFI Archiver performs this check every weekday (Monday to Friday) between 11:00 and 12:00 (noon).
When GFI Archiver detects that emails are not being archived, an automated email is sent to the administrator notifying him on the issue. There are many different reasons why email is not being archived, for example, because of a wrong configuration, a problem with Microsoft Exchange or simply because emails have not been received in that particular period.
