The mail archive service creates a copy in the archive store of all the mailitems that are read, not in the “deleted objects” system folder, and whose modification or expiration date is older than 30 days. The archive store is a separate storage system, which does not allow any modification of the archived mail items. The store can be searched through a web interface and archived items can be restored in the mailbox. The mail archive inherits the permissions from the mailbox: if other people have access rights to a mailbox, they have access to the archive of this mailbox.
The mail archive service offers a virtually unlimited and inexpensive storage option for mail items.
The mail archive service is a critical business service at ETH and has the appropriate ETH controls and functions.
It is available worldwide through all major web browsers.
The service is free of charge and is automatically available for every ETH mailbox.
