Importing users to Archive Manage for Exchange

Before archiving emails you need to import mailboxes and groups from Active Directory (including Office 365) to the Archive Manage for Exchange. The Address book Manager was designed especially for that purpose.

Run the Tools /Address book Manager. If no users are imported to Archive Manager, the Address book setup wizard pops-up, listing the three important steps you have to take:

·server importing,

·mailboxes importing

·groups importing
