Archiving only happens when the client is launched, so if a user never logs in, they'll never get archived. Also, unread emails will never archive automatically.

If its an active user, check to see if the archive directory has gotten created.. if not, sometimes it takes a little push.. just right click on an email, force it to archive, which will create the folder, etc.. then the next time you launch client, it should start automatically

Morning All,

GW2012 SP4 (although this has been coming from way way back...).. 16k users 9 PO's

What could the reasons be why clients will no adhere to the cleanup settings to auto archive lets say 30 days? .. we have mailboxes growing  (limit is 750mb) to 10gb for instance (ok yes if they do not login (not active) i understand).. but we have other users growing to 100% 120-200%, which still login (because if we lock the accounts we hear about very quickly...)..... now these totals i get from ConsoleOne, how correct they are, is yet another story! are these totals reliable? i mean why would anybody "use" email and not be able to send email is beyond me.. but this seems to be my users way of using email... well at least a lot of them anyway...

So checking the client settings in C1, when i set at DO/PO level it filters through fine... or well that is what C1 says .. BUT auto archiving is simply not happening on a lot of users? ... others seems fine?..

any ideas please?

Kind Regards,
