Step 5. Turn On Archiving

You must turn on archiving for each user organization (org) that contains users for whom you want to archive email messages.

Before turning on archiving, ensure that you:

*
*

Note: You can also use a batch command to turn on archiving and select an archiving option. For details about this batch command, refer to the Batch Reference Guide.

To turn on archiving:
1.
Go to https://login.postini.com.
2.
3.
Click the Orgs and Users tab, or click the Show Hierarchy link in the upper-left corner of the Home page.
4.
5.
On the Organization Management page, under Organization Settings, click Archiving.

The Message Archiving Settings page appears.

6.
On the Message Archiving Settings panel, select Archive messages for this organization.

7.
Select one of the following options:
*
*

WARNING: If you select both options, Message Archiving will store two copies of all inbound and outbound messages.

Note: If you are a Google Apps customer, use the All inbound and outbound messages option. You cannot use the All journaled messages option as Google Apps Email does not provide a method of journaling messages.

For details about the options on the Archive Settings panel, see About the Message Archiving Settings Page for a User Org.

8.
Click Save.
9.

The retention period you set applies to all messages entering the archive from that point on. It does not apply to messages already in the archive. If you need to ensure that existing messages with shorter retention periods are not deleted from the archive, turn off auto-purge on the Message Archiving Retention tab.

You can enter any retention period up to the number of months equivalent to the maximum retention period you purchased. For example, if you purchased one year of retention, you can enter any number of months up to 12.

10.
Click Save.

Note: If you select the All journaled messages option, your next step is to set up Message Archiving for journaling. This generates the email address for your archive, which you use when you set up journaling on your email server. See Step 6. Set Up Message Archiving for Journaling.
