Office 365 - Enable archive for heavy use users

mvalpreda asked
Last Modified: 2015-06-09
I want to make sure I am doing this right. I have Office 365 E3 licenses and the software installed from the portal. I have a few users approaching 50GB mailboxes and don't want to use local PST files. This is where I will use the archive feature in Office 365 correct?

Users, Active Users, find user, Edit Exchange properties
Mailbox features, Archiving: Disabled to Archiving: Enabled

Then in Outlook it will show an Archive mailbox like it would for an additional mailbox correct?
