Office 365: Email-retention settings activated Friday evening

By Information Technology ServicesOffice 365 logo

Office 365 email-retention settings will be activated on the evening of Friday, June 29. Any messages in Deleted Items folder or Junk Email folder over 30 days will be removed. Move any messages you would like to retain into other folders or the Archive folder before the evening of Friday, June 29.

A couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Items will be automatically removed from your Deleted Items folder after 30 days. You can recover those removed items for up to 14 days after their removal. See the Knowledge Base article on restoring deleted items.
  • Items will be automatically removed from your Junk Email folder after 30 days.

Contact the IT Help Desk, 785-532-7722, if you need help with your email.

The retention settings govern the automatic management of emails that have been moved to the Deleted Items folder and Junk Email folder. If you have questions about the retention policy, contact Greg Dressman, director of Enterprise Server Technologies, dressman@k-state.edu.
