With cloudHQ, you can set up a real-time backup of all your Office 365 Mail accounts to Amazon S3 / Glacier.
Real-time data backup will automatically make a backup copy of every new email that arrives in your Office 365 email. This means that cloudHQ is essentially capturing every single email received by Office 365 mail, then saving them to Amazon S3 / Glacier.
You can back up your organization’s Office 365 Mail accounts to Amazon S3 or any storage service supported by cloudHQ (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.).
To set up real-time backup of Office 365 Mail accounts, you need to create backup sync pairs:
Office365 Mail (firstname.lastname@example.org)All-Mail -> Amazon S3/Backup_bucketemail@example.com/Office365 Mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) Office365 Mail (email@example.com)/All-Mail -> Amazon S3/Backup_bucketfirstname.lastname@example.org/Office365 Mail (email@example.com) Office365 Mail (firstname.lastname@example.org)/All-Mail -> Amazon S3/Backup_bucketemail@example.com/Office365 Mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) Office365 Mail (email@example.com)/All-Mail -> Amazon S3/Backup_bucketfirstname.lastname@example.org/Office365 Mail (email@example.com) ...
You can back up each of your users’ Office365Mail accounts as follows:
- cloudHQ_sync - Backup of <email of user1> - Backup of Office 365 Mail (<email of user1>) - year - month - day - email1 - email2 ... - Backup of <email of user2> - Backup of Office 365 Mail (<email of user2>) - year - month - day - email1 - email2 ...
Here are the instructions for how to back up and consolidate all your Office 365 email accounts to cloud storage (e.g., Amazon S3):
- Office 365 Mail accounts have to be fully provisioned. cloudHQ will not provision Office 365 Mail accounts on your behalf. This means that each of your Office 365 users needs to log in at least once to their Office 365 Mail account.
- Your Office 365 admin needs to be added as an admin to users’ personal websites. The instructions are here: https://support.cloudhq.net/how-to-enable-admin-access-to-all-office-365-onedrive-users.
- Please be patient as it will take some time to propagate ownership changes.
