Move Office 365 online archives back into mailbox
Hello, Spiceys.I haven’t seen this subject handled recently, and because we are a slow upgraders, I’m wondering whether anyone has had luck with the solutions I’ve seen on this site so far.The problem is as follows: We’re using Office 365, and some of our users are utilizing online archiving services.
We used to use Office Professional Plus since the version of Outlook that came with it allowed us to access the online archive.The Office 2016 Standard edition of Outlook does not enable us to access our Online Archive, which we discovered after upgrading to this version of the software.Booo!As a result, my responsibility for these people is to stop their Online Archive and re-direct their mail to their inbox once again.
This is the most sensible answer I’ve come across so far (taken from here: They should change their retention policy such that archiving is no longer allowed.Remove the archive, wait a while, then activate the archive again.3.To restore data back to the primary mailbox, use the following command: To restore a mailbox, use the command New-MailboxRestoreRequest with the parameters Name, SourceMailbox, SourceIsArchive, TargetMailbox, and TargetRootFolder.
- Make their archive inaccessible.
- I wanted to do a test run on my mailbox, but first I needed to back it up completely (including the archives).
- I discovered that my traditional method of backing up a user’s mailbox to.pst (setting Outlook cache to all mail, then doing an Export) does not include online archives, as I had previously assumed.
- So I’m going to go ahead and leap without a net.
- Anyone who has gone through this before, how did it go for you?
I get a little concerned when I have to disable my CEO’s archive.Thank you very much.Matthew

Departmental Delivery Service Temporarily Reduced
Since the Postal Services team is experiencing staffing shortages, delivery services to campus departments will be curtailed beginning on Monday, December 13.From that point forward, most campus departments will only get one delivery/pickup each day, rather than two, until further notice.It has been confirmed that the Postal Services team has notified the few departments that will continue to get a morning and afternoon delivery and pickup service.
Consequently, any departmental mail that is received by USPS Postal Services after the department’s daily delivery will be processed and delivered the next business day at the time that has been arranged by USPS for delivery.In order to save time and money, departments can choose to retrieve mail or transport outgoing mail straight to the 711 Mail Processing Center (MPC), which is situated at 711 Marietta Street.Monday through Friday, retrievals and drop-offs at the MPC must be completed before 4:45 p.m.This minor inconvenience has been made possible thanks to your patience and understanding.

In the case of new students who have not yet been allocated a mailbox number, please substitute the words ″Incoming New Student″ for the number.
