Every email that is sent to or from Freestate Electric is automatically archived in the Barracuda Message Archiver.  If your mailbox becomes too large it can cause issues with switching between emails and searching for emails.  Here are a few tips to keep your mailbox to a reasonable size.

  • Delete unneeded emails
  • Move large folders to a local archive when no longer needed on a regular basis
  • Stub emails with large attachments using the Barracuda Message Archiver.  Information on the BMA can be found here:  Barracuda Message Archiver

The mail server has a few automatic email retention policies that delete emails from your mailbox automatically.  These policies do not affect folders unless they are located under the Inbox, Deleted Items or Sent Items folders.

  • Inbox Delete after 1 Year
  • Deleted Items Delete after 2 weeks
  • Sent Items Delete after 6 Months
