Forensic Email Collector™
Expertly preserve email evidence without breaking a sweat. Get plug & play output for digital forensic investigations and eDiscovery.
Powerful & Intuitive
Forensic Email Collector is a powerful tool—it can forensically acquire emails from Exchange Servers, Office 365, Gmail, G Suite and virtually any IMAP server with many output options and detailed logs. It is also remarkably intuitive. You can get started in just a few minutes and preserve emails and document your efforts with a few clicks.
This small Gmail and Google Calendar collection takes place in about a minute—complete with logs, hashing, and simultaneous output in EML, MSG and PST formats. That’s faster than the time it takes to launch some software!
Forensic Email Collector can connect to most popular email servers and cloud email providers. You are not stuck with IMAP or POP for forensic email preservation.
Office 365 & Exchange via EWS
FEC can connect to Exchange servers—including Office 365—via Exchange Web Services. You can preserve emails faster and more accurately, and without having to configure the target Exchange server for IMAP access.
Gmail & G Suite via REST API
FEC authenticates with Gmail and G Suite using OAuth and forensically acquires mailboxes at eye-watering speeds via Gmail API. Say goodbye to downloading the same message multiple times because of overlapping labels.
IMAP & POP3
FEC connects to IMAP & POP servers in a read-only manner and preserves email evidence without modifying the target mailbox. Outlook.com, Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, Zoho, iCloud and AOL Mail are just a few supported providers.
