Accessing Office 365’s Online Archive

Online Archiving for Office 365 is a powerful tool that allows users to offload email from their regular mailbox and enables the possibility of unlimited email storage.

Some reasons users may use online archiving is to take advantage of unlimited email storage (specific licenses required). Mac users also don’t have the ability only to sync partial mailboxes, so archiving can be very useful for Mac users with large mailboxes.

If you already have Online Archiving enabled, please follow the instructions below to access your Online Mailbox, if you would like to enable archiving click here to open a support ticket so this can be enabled for your account.

Instructions to access your Office 365 Online Archive
