An Open Letter to President-Elect Barack Obama From LiveOffice

TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwire - November 25, 2008) - LiveOffice, the leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) email archiving solutions, today issued the following open letter to President-elect Barack Obama, urging him to add another "first" to his record by becoming the first emailing president:

Dear President-elect Obama:

As the New York Times reported recently, you've got a problem -- your email. Experts (and according to the story, even your advisors) say that the Presidential Records Act makes it too risky for you to keep emailing and using your trusty BlackBerry once you take office. But you built your campaign platform around the idea of change, and we say it's time to buck the trend and turn you into an emailing, BlackBerry'ing commander-in-chief. We're confident it can be done.

"How?" you ask. What you need is an email archiving system that securely captures all the messages you send and receive and preserves them in their original format. It can even handle email messages you send from your BlackBerry. Plus, if you opt for a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering, you can be up and running in just a few days (and you'll never even notice a difference in your email).

As the first emailing president, an email archiving solution can help you:

-- Increase the transparency of your administration (which you've said is a top priority)

-- Prevent the risk of lost messages (and the subsequent bad PR -- as we saw when the Bush administration lost "potentially millions" of messages)

-- Benefit from the efficiencies of email while protecting your messages in a highly secure environment

As the developer of one of the first cloud-based email archiving solutions, we can tell you from firsthand experience that being the first to do something is always buzz worthy--and a solid email archiving system can make you the first emailing president. That's our platform, and we're sticking to it.
