Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service

Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service Mobile Application for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad

  • Last updated on



The Barracuda Companion mobile application allows you to perform various actions with your messages that are stored in your organization's Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service including:

  • Search for archived messages based on email content, or constrain the search to a date range, a specific sender, or subject line content;
  • Search deleted messages and emails no longer visible in your mail application;
  • View and interact with (reply to, reply all, or forward) archived messages.

These actions are available directly from your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, allowing transparent access to, and interaction with, your archived messages.

Only archived messages are available for search with the Barracuda Companion mobile application; non-email items such as calendar entries and contacts are not included in search results.


Email Password Characters
If your email password contains certain punctuation characters, for example the pound '#' symbol, you may encounter problems searching archived messages from iPhone Archived Mail.

Use the following steps to configure the mobile application:

  1. Launch Barracuda Archived Mail, and tap Settings; the Settings page displays.
  2. Tap in the Host field, and enter your region-specific MAS hostname, for example: mas.barracudanetworks.com

    See Data Centers by Region for region-specific MAS hostnames.

  3. In the Email field, tap and enter your email address from which to access archived messages.

  4. Tap in the Password field, and enter your password associated with the entered email address.
  5. Confirm your settings, and tap Save at the top of the screen.

Search for Archived Messages

Once configuration is complete, you can begin searching your archived emails. Tap Email at the top of the view, and tap on the desired search criteria.

The Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service administrator can associate an LDAP user or group to a role and list of email addresses in the Users > LDAP User Add/Update page. If addresses are excluded, and a configured user runs a search through the Barracuda Companion mobile application, the following whitelist/blocklist rules apply:

  • If an address is excluded (blocklisted), the address does not display unless the mail includes the user performing the search to assure that a user can always see their own mail.
  • The exclusion rules always take precedence; addresses that are whitelisted are searchable only if the exclusion rules do not block the mail.
  • If a user is not configured and is a member of a group, then the blocklist/whitelist rules assigned to that group apply to that user.
  • If a user is assigned to a group, when the user logs in via Barracuda Archive Search for Outlook or Barracuda Companion mobile application, only that user’s mail displays. For example, if an LDAP user has the Auditor role, mail available to the Auditor role does not display.


Table 1. Search Criteria.

AllReturns all messages that contain the search string anywhere in the From field, subject line, or email content.
SubjectReturns messages that contain the keyword only in the subject line.
FromReturns messages that contain the keyword only in the From field.
AdvancedRestrict the results to a predefined date range. Only those emails sent within the specified date(s) are returned in the search.


Tap in the Search field to display the keypad. Use the keypad to enter the desired keyword or search string; you must enter at least one keyword to perform a search. Keywords must be alpha-numeric characters, and are not case sensitive. Additionally, you can use wildcards to represent one or more other characters to use search patterns.

Table 2. Wildcards.

Wildcards are characters in search strings that can match arbitrary characters in a search. They can only be used as part of a single word, and are not allowed as the first character of a search word.

Wildcard SymbolRepresents
? (single question mark)Specifies a single alphanumeric character. Question marks can be appended to search for a specific number of characters, for example, a???a returns five letter words that start and end with "a" or "A".

* (asterisk)

Specifies zero or more alphanumeric characters. For example, pl* returns "plane", "planning", etc.

Once you specify the keyword and select the search criteria, tap Search to display the first 100 messages matching your search criteria, or tap Cancel to clear the field and enter a new keyword or search string.

A search is performed on all of your mail folders, including trash and deleted items.

Advanced Search Settings

To specify a specific date range in which to search, tap Advanced at the top of the view. The Advanced Search page displays the current date. To change the date range, tap Date Range. Tap on the desired date to update the field with your selection.

The date selected in the Date To field must be the same or later date than the date selected in the Date From field.

Any criteria specified in Advanced settings is used in conjunction with the criteria specified in the Search field; define your date range, and select Advanced from a Search to use the specified date range in conjunction with the keyword to search archived messages.

All messages matching the specified criteria display in the search results:
