Office 365 - Email Archiving

Office 365 - Email Archive

Client has been using Office 365 since March 2012. At the time all onprem mailbox data was imported (using Migration Wiz).

Directors have requested that all email data prior to 1st September 2012 is now archived off of the system and held locally (external disk/s) which will be stored by one of the Directors.

I know about using Office 365's Online Archive systems (as per here) as well as retention policies. This is not what they require.

They want all email data prior to that date to not appear anywhere in the system.

Is this fesabile?

Hello Mark,

I work for SImply Migrate, we have tools that can do this for you too... www.simplymigrate.com

You can see it here: https://www.simplymigrate.com/support/migrate-exchange-to-pst-file/

The only thing you would change about the above PS is that you would add a -DateTo "01/09/2012" to the line to stop everything from that point being added.

All of life is about relationships, and EE has made a viirtual community a real community. It lifts everyone's boat
