DePaul maintains several different email retention policies depending on mailbox type. Please review the information below for a full explanation of the various retention policies. The
Help Desk can answer any questions that you may have.
Your online archive is located in the navigation pane beneath your inbox, in most versions of the Microsoft Outlook Application as well as the online Outlook Web Application (OWA.) Note: Your online archive is not available in Outlook 2016 for Mac.
Your available archive space is shown in the bottom-left corner of the Outlook client when you are viewing a folder within the archive.
Only the owner of a mailbox has access to the archive, not users with delegate access.
Owners of resource accounts may choose from three email archive and retention policies.
The default 90-day policy will be applied to your account automatically. Owners may request a change in policy using the Email Retention Policy Change Request Form.
