Email has become the basic communication medium for official purposes. Along with corporations, most people use emails for their business activities such as banking, sharing confidential messages, and sending classified files. With the high usage of emails, it can be one of the main evidentiary pieces of a case.

The Forensics Team at Lexbe can collect data from Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, Microsoft 365, Microsoft Exchange, and many more. With the help of the forensic tools, all the content from an email account, possibly including deleted messages, can be collected.

What to Expect

To collect email data, our Forensic specialists requires that a Remote Collection Form be filled out. Clients can expect to provide the following:

      • If the custodian or entity has set up 2-step authentication for their profile, a call would need to be arranged with the custodian to ensure a successful login. For security purposes, custodian's are encouraged to change their password before and after the collection process has been completed.

Once the collection is completed, the data will be exported in the requested format. If desired, data can then be loaded into Lexbe or another review platform for review. Available export formats include:
