E-Mail filing

By using Veritas Enterprise Vault, TU-Berlin employees can actively relieve the storage space of their e-mail inbox (exchange). Thanks to this reduction of used e-mail storage space, e-mail applications such as Outlook and Thunderbird can work faster and more stable.

Veritas software stores e-mail attachments older than 60 days and larger than 1MB on a TU-internal archive server. A link with direct access to the archived attachment is stored in the corresponding e-mail. This allows an easy access to the archived attachments in the future.

This software is therefore particularly interesting for users with high e-mail quota.

The following options are available to access the veritas application:

If needed more often, archived attachments can be restored at any time.


The cost of the Veritas Enterprise Vault license is 30 € in the first year.

The license can then be renewed in a 3-year cycle for 22.50 €. Accordingly, the license costs € 7.50 per year from the second year on.

Automatic renewal of the license can be activated / deactivated.


In order to purchase the license for yourself or for other employees, you must have the administration role "Strukturverwalter". Initially, this administration role is owned by leaders of departments, headquarters, faculties and institutes.

You can also get the administration role "Strukturverwalter" from your role administrator (Rollenverwalter).
