Online Archiving is the email archiving service at Imperial College London and is provided by Office 365. Online Archiving is enabled by default on all Office 365 email accounts. All messages over two years old are archived.

Using Online Archiving

Accessing your archived emails

You can access your archived emails by going to the Personal Archive folder in the left hand navigation of the desktop version of Outlook. If you do not have Outlook, you can search your archive online via webmail.

Messages are moved to a folder in the archive mailbox that has the same name as the source folder in the primary mailbox. If a folder with the same name doesn't exist in the archive mailbox, it’s created when the message is moved.

Limitations of Online Archiving

Online Archiving cannot be accessed via mobile devices.

Leaving College
