How many days of queueing with Online Forefront AND Online Archiving RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hoping someone can help...

    I have an on-premise Exchange server and I would like to add FOPE AND Exchange Online Archiving.  If I did that, and my server went down, how long will my email be queued for? 

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    FOPE will keep the message for 5 days until a NDR is sent.

  • Hi Christian,

    Appreciate the response... I am aware that FOPE alone will keep mail for 5 days, but my understanding is that Exchange Online Continutity Services were rolled into Exchange Online Archiving 2 years ago.  Continuity Services provided much longer queuing.   So, with it rolled into Exchange Online Archiving, I would expect more than 5 days.   Can you tell me if this is the case when both FOPE and Exchange Online Archive are being utilitized?  I've asked at least 10 different MS support personnel and each one just points me to a different forum or support phone number.

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    that's a good question. Exchange Hosted Continuity has a storage limit of 30 day as you can see in the following document:

    I don't know if there is a longer period when you have Exchange Hosted Archive, but I couldn't image that the time is much longer than 30 days. 30 days is a really long time to restore your internal mail server.

  • Right, but -at least to my knowledge- Exchange Hosted Continuity is no longer available.  I read that it had been incorporated into the Exchange Online Archive

    Is there a forum for Exchange Hosted Archive?  Would that be the right place to ask?  I couldn't find one....

  • Hi,

    AFAIK Hosted Archive has been moved to Office 365.

    I've found a forum for Exchange Online:

    Maybe they can help you?
