The Notes Admin 2

Isaac B. Markowitz sat his desk, examining the new Lotus Notes discovery and Lotus Notes archiving solutions from Reducemail Pro, when he was blinded by flash of pulsating color. All of the sudden, there was a slightly older version of him standing on the other side of the desk.

“Hello, Isaac,” the older Isaac said. “I’m also Isaac, but I’m from the future. I’m you.”

Isaac was dumbfounded. He knew extensively about the possibility of forward time travel from his college physics courses, but backward time travels seemed beyond anything in the universe, unless it were magic.

“I bring you important news from the near future. Your company will soon implement an email retention policy, and it’s possible no one will be spared.”

“Is there time travel in the future?”

“How I came here is not important. What’s important is that soon you will have to be in charge of people’s inboxes, and you need to make sure that you don’t do certain things.”

“Don’t do what?”

The older Isaac began to fade away. “I must go. You’ll see.”

Isaac suddenly received a phone call from management, telling him surely enough that he was to be in charge of implementing a retention policy that would begin one month from now. He opened up the Lotus Notes deletion module of Reducemail Pro and set a quota for all users, ready to go into effect in a month.  

As time passed, Isaac was nagged by a feeling that he was forgetting something important, that he neglected something. He thought back to the conversation he had with himself. Then, he realized. He should protect the CEO and other top employees from the retention policy using a feature of the new solution. Their email was too important to be deleted.

Sure enough, the retention policy was implemented without a hitch, and the CEO was very happy to still have his inbox intact, even if a lot was just holiday-season mass-mailings. A gigantic portal opened up a few weeks later in Isaac’s office, and he went through, knowing exactly where he would end up.
