E-mail archiving generally refers to

applications that remove e-mail from the mail server and manage it in a central location also known as an archive. Information technology professionals use the term "archiving" to mean the copying or transfer of files for storage. In general, these applications collect in a central repository the e-mail (which may include attachments, calendars, task lists, etc.) of some or all agency users. E-mail archiving applications typically require little to no action on the part of the user to store or manage the e-mail records. Once messages are stored, authorized users are able to search the repository.[1]
