Exchange 2013 In-Place Archive – Email Client Requirements

To access an archive mailbox in Exchange 2013, two different clients can be used: Outlook and OWA. Exchange ActiveSync is still not supported.

It is important to consider that Outlook 2007 requires the Office 2007 Cumulative Update for February 2011 and, even then, it provides only limited capabilities for archiving. With Outlook 2007, users can access their archive and:

  • Move or copy messages and folders between their primary mailbox and their archive;
  • Move or copy messages and folders between PSTs and their archive (as long access to PSTs is not blocked);
  • Export or import messages to and from the archive;
  • Use Inbox Rules to automatically move messages to a folder in the archive mailbox.

However, some functionalities are not supported in Outlook 2007, such as:

  • When a user searches the primary mailbox and selects All Mailbox Items, Outlook does not search the archive mailbox. Similarly, when the user searches the archive mailbox, the primary mailbox is not searched.
  • Default archive policies for the mailbox continue to be applied but users cannot use personal tags to move items to their archive.

The following shows the supportability of different versions of Outlook for use with In-Place Archiving:
