    Hi Paul,

    Here you have some options to achieve this:

    • Prevent new data from being automatically archive (our policy is 90 days) --> modify the mailbox archiving policy to archive all emails older than say 99 years
    • Prevent users for manually moving data to the archives --> on the desktop policy, disable the manual archiving buttons and also disable Virtual Vault, in case it is enabled
    • Set the archive to READ ONLY --> no need to do anything from the EV side really
    • All user to still see their archive data --> once the users are moved to O365, they will be able to access their archived data via EV search/Archive Explorer within the IE browser
    • remain available after we complete the migration --> I would recommend upgrading EV to a supported version so that you can get access to support in case it is required
