  • Add ability to synchronize archive mailboxes from Microsoft 365 to x360Cloud
  • Improve performance and stability of backups for Microsoft 365
  • Fix defects in UI\UX and address issues reported by users


Microsoft 365 archive mailboxes (also known as in-place archives) are synchronized from the source system to x360Cloud (registered as x360Cloud “containers”) automatically, every 24 hours.

This can make it difficult for users who have disabled auto-selection to enable protection for newly-created containers, since they were required to wait for the automatic synchronization to take place. 

In version 3.42.0, we have added the ability for a user to initiate the synchronization process for archive mailboxes on demand.

How to initiate synchronization for archive mailboxes on demand:

1. In your organization Service settings page, make sure you have set your Archive mailbox toggle to ON:

2. Navigate to the Accounts page and click on Archive Mailboxes:

3. Click the Sync button. 

Synchronization duration depends on the number of containers in your archive mailbox and can take up to a minute for large organizations.
