Exchange 2010 Archiving

Hi,

I'm picking up a project where an admin has started to roll out Exchange Online Archiving.

One user has all email over two years old archived into folders with the year in their Archive Mailbox.

Now I don't know if Exchange created these folders or a the admin did it.

I added a user into the same retention policy as this user but it didn't create the expected folders.

I'm thinking that the admin just enabled archiving, created these year folders and imported the email that was in PSTs for the year into the archive mailbox.

Can Exchange archiving be setup to archive email to named folders by year?

Or is it not that advanced?

Hello,

Once the Archiving policy is configured, and it is enabled . It will automatically create the same folder in Archive mailbox as it is created in User personal Mailbox.

Suppose the folders are not seen exactly in Archieve Folder, then some trick need to be done at outlook end.

Just Move any old email from Archive Mailbox to user personal mailbox. and run below command, as you run below command the Archieve policy will re-run for that particular user and create a Folder structure same in Archieve mailbox

Start-Managedfolderassistant -identity "username" ... Press Enter

Thanks
Andy
