O365 Mailbox Maximum Size and options for bigger


This is a simple issue...Exchange mailbox over 50GB of data?

I have a client, an attorney, that keeps every bit of email and refuses to believe that 50GB is the max size for his O365 mailbox.  He's looking for a solution whereas he can basically keep all email, always.  I'm fairly confident I can't make his mailbox bigger than 50GB, so with that in mind, what other options are there for this user?  He wants the ability to search/retrieve any email without looking in multiple spots.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Archive the email and archives can remain searchable. I use Archives to solve this email and I have email going back to 1996.

If I archive email, it is not available via OWA or from his phone to search/retrieve.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Yes about Phone. You may be correct about OWA . I carry my laptop with me to permit access. Otherwise the user must live with the size limitations

Does anyone know about online archiving?
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
Yes the archive mailbox is available in OWA. If the mailbox and the archive is in O365.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Assuming Tim to be correct, forget the Phone (locally) and archive so available in OWA. Then use Safari on the phone to access OWA.  

Prime goal: keep the size of the main file reasonable for good performance.
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
I'm correct. I just did .
Joe ThompsonPrincipal ManagerAuthor Commented:
Ok, I'll look into the online archive option.  Any good pointers for setting that up?
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
nope no pointers in setting it up. Just go to the user mailbox and enable it. Thats all.
