When a message is archived via the ExchangeWebServer API ArchiveItem option (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/client-developer/web-service-reference/archiveitem-operation), there is no way to programmatically read the archived message.

Can the graph api expose items in the archive and allow for messages to be read from the In-place archive.

Our company is moving back to using EWS API as retrieving data from in-place archives is mandatory.

Same for us. It is really annoying that this feature is just not available through the api

Same here, we need to retrieve data from the main mailbox along with the in-place archive. I guess we need to revert to the EWS, waiting a long time for the API to be updated is not an option for us.

Upvoting this - as an MSP this would help us manage client emails more easily. At the moment, if we want to move messages to in-place archive, we have to be at their computer.

Do we have a resolution on this yet? Also, is it true that with EWS API - we can access in-place archive folders?

@koduri77 No, still pending from Microsoft (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/exchange-team-blog/retirement-of-exchange-web-services-in-exc...). Yes (at the time of writing 2024-01-23), the EWS API can access the in-place archive.

I currently have a few scripts for managing items within the in-place archive using EWS managed API, and would like to get these updated to Graph API as soon as possible seeing as EWS has a limited shelf life.

 

Please can you provide an update as to when you will start development on this?
