Cloud mailbox items recovery - pros and cons

  1. When using cloud  mailboxes, once the cloud mailbpx is opened, Office 365 items are maintained through the term of the agreement with the company.
  2. The user will be able to independently recover permanently deleted emails from Recoverable Items within 30 days.
  3. You can restore an item (email, contact, calendar meeting, etc.) from the box according to the following criteria:
    • Keywords.
    • Item Type.
    • Time Range.
  4. Entire folders will not be restored. You can restore only individual items that were included the folder, but not the folder itself. Deleted items will be restored to the Inbox  or deleted items folders depending on where the item resided before deletion.
  5. Any recovery of information from the box will generate a PST file that can be accessed using desktop Outlook software only. Items are not imported directly into their original folders and must be manually moved to the appropriate folders.
