How to Restore Microsoft Office 365 Mailboxes

Two (2) Office 365 Mailbox restore options are available in the Altaro Office365 backup solution.

  • Restore Entire Mailbox
  • Email Granular Restore (explained in this post)

NOTE! I have selected the option “Email Granular Restore” to explain the Office 365 restore scenario in this post. This option is useful for many situations like a user accidentally deleting a mail from the mailbox and deleting items. It is also valid for many other scenarios, like tracing users’ deleted emails for auditing or complacency requirements.
