How to schedule archiving for a public folder

First you need to check if the desired public folder has had the archiving option activated (see the section How to activate the archiving option for a public folder). Folders activated for archiving are displayed in green. You can now schedule archiving by assigning a job (see the sections “Scheduler tab” and How to create a job).

Jobs tab

On this tab you can define jobs for automated archiving. Archiving with jobs is done in the background – with predefined settings.

info

IMPORTANT: On the Jobs tab, at the bottom of the right pane, you have to specify the backup time, in other words, the period during which jobs are not supposed to run in order to enable database backup. It is not possible to archive until it is set. Just enter the time in the Backup start time and Backup stop time fields and then click Update.

You may for instance schedule your database backup overnight.

info

NOTE: Do not schedule your jobs during the backup interval, as they are paused until the backup period is over and no mails would be archived during that period. After that the job is resumed.

At first there may not be jobs defined, as seen below. You need to create them.
