We have been and are currently archiving emails to the cloud, but only for approx 5-6 years.  We still have old psts lurking and being used by users ,but most should have been imported manually in the past.
I plan to disable the option for email archiving and force users to use the cloud to retrieve.

The only problem i forsee is user change.

Any other things i should think of before i propose this?

Recently, another agency (state government) migrated away from PST files to cloud-based archiving.  To ease the transition for users they prepared a two-page document/flyer describing the change with brief details.  More importantly, they specified a date for when the cloud-based archiving would be available, a date when creation of Outlook PST files would no longer be allowed/available and a date when access to Outlook PST files would no longer be allowed/available.  The purpose was to give the users plenty of time to prepare and migrate their data.  Reports are that the transition went very smoothly.
If you'd like to see a copy of the flyer let me know and I'll send you a copy directly.
