The University provides Microsoft Exchange email accounts for all University faculty, staff, and administrators. To keep this system functioning at peak performance, users’ active email is limited to 500 megabytes of storage. When you exceed that limit, you receive warnings from the system, and if you go more than 10% above your quota, you can no longer send email from your account.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t keep lots of email. The solution is to archive older email so that it doesn’t take up room on the MS Exchange system. You have two archiving options. Local archiving comes with your MS Outlook client. Another archiving solution available to the community is ArchiveOne, which archives email onto a server maintained by University IT Services. The Teaching, Learning, and Technology Center provides workshops on archiving that can help you determine which solution is best for your needs and get you set up with your preferred method of arching.
