GreyLit’s open-access platform

Email Indexing Solution

Email discussion lists amass a wealth of information, but it’s very difficult to access. GreyLit’s powerful solution transforms emails into indexable threads that can be searched, shared and reviewed any time.

Email discussion lists have been a great tool to securely and privately share information among email users for years.

Over time, email discussion lists amass/aggregate/accrue important and historical information, key pieces of corporate memory and, in their attachments, grey literature. One of the most common email discussion list platforms is ListServ by IBM. Some of the main benefits of email discussion list technology is that it is easy to use, it requires very little software know-how, and it allows for asynchronous communication anytime from anywhere.

However, email discussion list technology development has not been updated, so the lists lack modern searching and tagging functions and lack typical content analysis features. Enter GreyLit.

GreyLit has created a customizable Email Indexing Solution that specifically extracts content from email lists like ListServ. Our tool transforms ListServ content into indexable threads that can be searched, shared, and reviewed at any time. What's more, the Email Indexing Solution also indexes any attachments—which makes them searchable as well!
