Inactive Accounts

To maintain security, starting in early October 2023, inactive alumni email accounts that have not been logged into within the last two years will be disabled. Accounts will not be deleted, and alums will be able to reactivate accounts if they would like by submitting our LawKey request form. Disabled accounts will continue to receive email. If you are forwarding your email to an external address, forwarding will continue to work if your account is disabled.

Automatic Online Archiving

Large email accounts cause Outlook to slow down, take longer to search, and crash more often. Online archiving will automatically move emails older than two years into an online archive.

The archive folders appear in a section named Archive located below your normal folders and are searchable just like regular emails. The archive is available whenever you are connected to the Internet through Outlook for Windows and Outlook Web App
