Evault archives moving to in-place archive mail folder in Outlook

Thu, 2015-12-17 18:59

McGill IT Services is preparing to decommission the EVault email archiving service, used by active and retired faculty and staff, by March 31, 2016. Between December 20 and the end of March, archived mail messages will be moved from EVault to an “in-place” archive folder structure, which is accessible from Outlook 2010/2013/2016 on Windows and Outlook 2016. The archive folder, and subfolder structure, will also be available from the Outlook Web App (OWA), so you can access archived messages on the web if you don’t have one of these Outlook client applications.
