Hi Cloud Sellers!

GREAT NEWS!  Exchange Online Archiving (EOA) is now available as add-on to any Enterprise Exchange Online plan.

What does this mean?  Exchange Online Archiving (EOA), including In-Place hold and unlimited storage, was previously only available to be purchased as an add-on to on-premises Exchange Server 2010 mailboxes. Customers who wished to use Exchange Online mailboxes and required In-Place hold (or Litigation hold as it is sometimes called) were required to purchase Exchange Plan 2 (or E3/E4.)  With this enhancement, Exchange Online Archiving (EOA) can now be purchased as an add-on to any Exchange Online plan, including Kiosk and Plan 1.

Specifically, Exchange Online Archiving (EOA) is now available as an add-on for Enterprise K1,K2, E1, A2, G1, and Exchange Online Plan1, Exchange Online K SKUs at a cost of $3.00 per user license per month.

  • Is there a difference in features between Exchange Online Plan 2 and a combination of Exchange Online Plan 1 + Exchange Online Archiving?

    Exchange Online Plan 2 = $8 per month

    Exchange Online Plan 1 + Exchange Online Archiving = $7

  • @JJM - Exchange Plan 2 also includes Data Loss Prevention as well as Unified Messaging (voice mail.)  See table on the Exchange Online Service Description: technet.microsoft.com/.../exchange-online-service-description.aspx

  • Hi When I go through the same set up, its not giving me an option to choose the mailbox I wanted. its saying this will add on to previously purchased E1 license.
