We are transitioning from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.  the first step we are doing is gradually moving mailboxes over to the new Exchange server.

I had a user run her auto archive when prompted to.  It archived the emails as it normally does but she happened to be looking in her Recover Deleted Items folder and noticed emails that were the same as the ones that she just archived.

Is this a normal function that a copy is saved of archived items in the Recover deleted Items folder?

Her mailbox recently just did get moved to the Exchange 2010 server.


Client is Outlook 2007


Thanks

When you archive an item in Outlook it just copies it to a PST file, the original message is deleted.
As hard deleted items (not in the deleted items folder) can be recovered using the Recovered Items option I would say this is normal.
Recovered Deleted items do not count towards the mailbox limits and are purged from the server once the specified time has expired.
