Email Archive

Edit Storage Period

You can set a retention period other than the default for messages from a domain or an individual mailbox.

The available storage period ranges from 1 to 10 years, calculated from each message’s receipt/sent date. Messages whose date is outside the retention period chosen will be automatically deleted from the archive.

Change a domain’s storage period

When you change a domain’s storage period, this change only applies to new mailboxes that undergo archiving for that domain. Existing mailboxes retain the previous settings.

To change the storage period for a domain:

  • Enter the Qboxmail control panel
  • Click on archive in the sidebar
  • Click on the domain name whose storage period you want to change
  • Click on settings
  • Change storage years by default
  • Save

Change the storage period for a mailbox

To change the storage period for a mailbox:

  • Enter the Qboxmail control panel
  • Click on archive in the sidebar
  • Click on the domain name which the mailbox is part of
  • Click on the name of the mailbox whose storage period you want to change
  • Click on settings
  • Change storage years
  • Save

Within 24 hours the system will apply the changes by deleting any messages older than the new set storage period.
