Create New Archiving Policy (Filters)

Applies to: User Mailbox

Use this dialog box to create a new Exchange archiving policy. Use the Filters tab to define which folders and message types are included in or excluded from archiving operations.

Important:

  • The folder names that you include or exclude must be in the same language (locale) that is used by your end users in Microsoft Outlook. Click Add, and then enter the folder names in each language that you support. You can add folder names in several languages within one policy, or create separate policies for each language.
  • Folder names that you include or exclude must not contain square brackets (for example, [Folder Name]). The square bracket is treated as a regular expression, and not as a literal character.

Note: If the same folder is selected for both inclusion and exclusion, inclusion takes precedence.
