Tips for Cleaning Your Mailbox

Cleaning up your local archives will allow for a faster conversion for everyone.  You do not need to delete items that are important and you want to keep, but you should remove unnecessary items.  For example, many people do not know that a copy of every sent message is retained.  These sent items get archived over time, and many people have found they have tens of thousands of messages they do not need to keep.

  • Save time when cleaning up by selecting multiple messages to delete.
  • People use their mail in different ways.  Consider these strategies to optimize your cleanup efforts.
  • Outlook in Office 365 doesn't allow for messages (including attachments) that are larger than 25 MB.  Use this handy search to find if you have messages that are too large to migrate.  This includes both your live mail and your archives.
