How to access an Exchange/Office 365 Archive Mailbox in the Windows 8 Mail App?

    Question

  • I use Exchange for my email though Office 365... However I can't access my Archived Emails though the Windows 8 Mail app...

    I tried asking on the Office 365 community and they referred me here...

  • Is it an Office 365 online archive? Also, mail only shows the last 2 weeks mail by default.

  • Yes, It is the Archive Mailbox setting that can be enabled under the person's Exchange Settings.

    I have it set for all email instead of 2 weeks.

    You're missing the point. Outlook creates a PST archive... If you enable online archive within O365 then it is cloud based. What are you trying to access?

  • I think you are misunderstanding what I am saying...

    When I open Outlook on the Web App I have a special inbox called Archive that isn't a folder inside the normal inbox but a separate inbox inside my account...

    When I view my Outlook email in the Windows 8 client, I see all my folders from my normal Mailbox but not the Archive Mailbox...

  • I see what you mean, it is an online archive, mine doesn't show up in the mail app either is would seem!
