Retain Email Archiving

In the previous Groupwise system, email was automatically moved to the Retain archive after 90 days. Users are unable to delete email from the Retain archive.

In preparation for the Outlook migration, Retain archiving was suspended keeping all email in the live inbox. Archived email from December 2016 and prior continues to be available at

The Retain archive is completely independent from your new Outlook account. Users are unable to move Retain email to Outlook and conversely, move Outlook mail to Retain.

ITS is currently working with University administration to revisit the archiving retention policy and analyze the migration strategy to Outlook's in-place archive. It is anticipated the archive migration will take place in the Fall of 2017.
