Hi

 

I want to find out how to set in-place archving as a default setting for all new user mailboxes or if its possible.

 

Thanks

Hi Alistair,

AFAIK, not possible at the moment. There is a uservoice open for it here but it’s old and hasn’t got a lot of votes so may be worth raising a new one

https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/264636-general/suggestions/10210611-global-domain-setting-for...

The best way to do this currently in terms of time is probably by powershell in this article

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/microsoft-365/compliance/enable-archive-mailboxes

See section enable archive mailboxes

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris
