How Does Office 365 Provide Mailbox-Level Backups?

| | Comments are off for this post.

Well, it doesn’t! “Microsoft doesn’t give you direct access to the mailbox databases. Instead, they give you deleted item retention, plus you can use single-item retention and various types of holds.” Here is a link to more details about this: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee364755(v=exchg.150).aspx

There is no Office 365 feature or capability that protects against a logical corruption in the Mailbox. As well, you can’t use New-MailboxExportRequest or the EAC to export the contents of Office 365 mailboxes to PST files.

If Mailbox-Level backup is an absolute requirement for particular Mailboxes (let’s say CEO’s mailbox), probably those mailboxes shouldn’t move to Office 365.

So plan accordingly your integration with Office 365!
