are a feature of Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2013 that allows users to store
older messages in a server-side mailbox instead of in a .pst file that is
stored locally. Users can access their personal archive mailbox through Outlook
2010 or the Outlook Web App.
archives includes the following tasks:
- Enable support
in Services Manager. Because support for personal archives is not enabled by
default, you must enable it for each applicable Hosted Exchange user plan you
intend to provision. If support is not enabled, personal archives are not
available to the user when the Hosted Exchange service is provisioned.
- Enable personal
archives for each user in Exchange. If personal archives are not enabled in
Exchange for the user when the Hosted Exchange service is provisioned, Services
Manager enables the feature automatically. If no mailbox database is specified
when the user plan is configured, Services Manager selects the appropriate
mailbox database automatically when the user is provisioned.
