Configuring Archive Settings at the User Level


Topic Last Modified: 2011-04-07

You can enable or disable the EHA service for a user, edit the message retention period, or enable or disable legal hold for a user. If message retention period and legal hold settings are not specified for the user, the default settings that are configured for your company or for the user's domain are applied to the user.

To edit archive settings for a user
  1. In the Administration Center, click the Administration tab, and then click the Users tab.

  2. Click the appropriate user account.

  3. In the Service Settings section of the center pane, next to Archive Settings, click Edit.

  4. Select Enable or Disable from the Archive Service box to enable or disable the Exchange Hosted Archive service for the user.

  5. Select Enable or Disable from the Legal hold box to enable or disable legal hold for the user. Messages reaching the end of their retention period are not destroyed while legal hold is enabled.

  6. In the Retention period box, specify how long messages are held in the archive before they are destroyed.

  7. Click Save.
