Create Mail Archive

Email archiving is a key component of a company’s IT strategy and information management policy. Backup for Office 365/ G Suite introduces independent mail archiving solution for Exchange Online users. Users can benefit from all advantages of secure mail archiving with Backup for Office 365 / G Suite. The application creates 1:1 copies of all mail messages according to Archive Options configured by user. Original mail messages are deleted from mailbox to save space and mail message copies are stored in backup storage to ensure the security and availability of large amounts of data over a period of years. Users can access mail message copies on Mail page in the same folders where original messages were displayed, and search through them, if necessary. Archived messages are marked with an orange envelope icon in a grid, as opposed to the original messages, which are marked with black envelope icons
