|Title: Email Retention||Number:|
Maintenance must be run regularly to improve the efficient operation of the mail system. Removing old mail significantly reduces the likelihood of a mail system failure and reduces the time for recovery in case of a failure. Deleting old email is preferred to archiving everything. Statistics show that only about 5% of archived email is ever accessed. Please do not use archives as an alternative to trash.
Instructions on how to archive your email (faculty and staff only) are available at
Assistance in archiving is available at ext. 3694
Phone support for faculty and staff in setting up archiving is available at the HelpDesk at ext.
