SHSU Technology Tutorials | Exchange 2013 Online Archive


With Microsoft Exchange 2013 comes a new Online Archive folder (available in both Outlook and the OWA). This new folder will allow you to save e-mails to a folder that does not count against your standard SHSU e-mail quota.

The quota for the Online Archive is 5 GB.

If you wish to use this archive feature all you have to do is drag an email from your inbox to the archive folder.
