Archiving and Discovery > Create an archive mailbox

Create an archive mailbox
Archive accounts are created based on the Zimbra Archive name templates.
The archive account is displayed in the administration console with the .archive extension. When a message is received in a mailbox with archiving enabled, a copy of the message is sent to the archive mailbox.
The two attributes you configure on the account to create the archive account are
*
Currently archived to — The current archive address. Archiving is to a single account. If this is unset, archiving is not enabled.
*
Archived accounts — A list of previous and current archive addresses that this mailbox was archived to.
