  • This topic applies only to customers using FOPE in a stand-alone environment, and not as part of the Microsoft Office 365 or Live@edu services. Microsoft Office 365 and Live@edu subscribers cannot delete a domain in the FOPE Administration Center. For more information about removing a domain in Office 365, consult your Office 365 for enterprises or Office 365 for small businesses documentation. For more information about cancelling the service for a domain, Live@edu customers should consult the following topic: Cancel service for a domain.

  • Once a domain has been deleted it is not recoverable. All users and settings for the domain will be deleted from the FOPE Administration Center.

  • The delete functionality is only available for customers who do not subscribe to the Hosted Archive service.
