Move Online Archive emails

New Contributor

Hello All,


I need to know if online archive can be restricted and segregated to certain folders? As far as I am aware if archival policy is applied it will impact the entire mailbox eg: accordingly all the folders and sub folders within this mailbox will get archived, as per the convention.

Please advise if certain folder can be de-synched where Archival policies wont work.


Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

Yes, you can apply retention tags to specific folders only, so that only messages in those folders will be moved to the archive once they age out. You need to use the old Exchange-style retention controls for that:

I'm moving this discussion to the Exchange space for better visibility.

Thanks, Please advise if this can be limited to one user or few users not all?

Yes, it can be limited to one user only if needed. Read the above article and the references therein.

Thanks Vasil.
