Logik, the leader in cloud-based eDiscovery, today announced support for Lotus Notes (NSF) email processing in Logikcull.com. Rounding out a list of nearly a dozen major email types now supported by Logikcull.com, the newly announced, no-cost support of NSF processing for all users represents Logik’s commitment to democratized eDiscovery with Logikcull.com.
With Logikcull, the processing of Lotus Notes email is seamless, quick, and easy. Logikcull users simply upload their NSF files directly into Logikcull, just like they would any other file or archive. Logikcull then processes the mailbox for discovery by extracting emails, attachments, metadata, and performing other key document discovery steps such as de-duplication, virus scanning, OCR, file type analysis, embedded file extraction, document formatting, language detection, and rendering to PDF.
“It’s rare that law firms will encounter an NSF (Lotus Notes file) mailbox during discovery when you consider that Outlook, Apple Mail, Gmail, and others dominate the email client landscape,” said Andy Wilson, CEO and co-founder of Logik. “But when you do receive an NSF, you’ll need to process and search it just like you would an Outlook PST or Apple MBOX file. We want our users prepared for that, which is why we’re continually adding additional supported file types to Logikcull.”
Many discovery applications convert NSF to PST prior to processing due to the complicated nature of handling NSF files natively. Such pre-processing routines dramatically and recklessly increase the chances of data loss and spoliation. Those discovery applications that do handle NSF files natively commonly use the DXL format suggested by IBM. While the DXL format is quick to implement, the quality of the extracted emails and metadata is inadequate in a discovery environment. Logik chose another approach.
“We tried the suggested DXL method and although it was faster to extract, the quality of metadata and email format was very poor when compared to the original message,” said CTO and Logik co-founder, Sheng Yang. “The DXL emails didn’t even look close to the way they were originally stored and viewed. That’s a problem for discovery and review. You want the emails to look precisely as they did when they were sent. Not like some basic text file stripped of all formatting.”
Rather than rely on the subpar DXL format, Logik engineered a way to extract the messages in HTML. The Logikcull HTML output for NSF yields an email that looks just as it did within the original Lotus Notes mailbox. Complete with fancy tables, colors, and embedded images.
Seamless, quick, and easy NSF processing is now available to all Logikcull.com customers at no additional charge.
