Office 365: Email Archiving For Compliance
Keep everything you need, for as long as you want ...
Email archiving is a way to preserve everything your organisation sent and received, either indefinitely or for a fixed period. Archiving can be expanded to other services within Office 365 like Skype and OneDrive, but Email is the primary reason for it ...
Office 365 contains a full set of email archiving and data compliance tools!
In certain industries such as financial services, it is a legal requirement to keep all email for a period of six years. Also, if an organisation enters into litigation, there may be a need to produce all communication between the two parties, so again, six years worth of archiving is a sensible idea.
"Office 365 email archiving makes a great deal of sense!"
Switching it on is a breeze. Your administrator (usually Virtual IT) can activate it for each email account you have or set an overall policy. This means that anything in an Exchange email account (usually available via Outlook) that is over 2 years old is moved to the 'archive' and available for searching.
But what else can be archived? Here's the list of everything:
Office 365 groups
Skype for Business
Exchange public folders
Archiving for all these services can be switched on and off, and you can choose how long you want to keep it for.
When using Office 365 email archiving (and archiving for other Microsoft services) you can remain confident that your information is protected with physical and digital security measures that are advanced and dependable.
You archives are hosted on trusted Microsoft servers and each user gets up to 50Gb to use. Yes, the archives can get quite large, but they are easily searchable and the archive space is included in your monthly subscription.
