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. This option is valid for many other scenarios like tracing the deleted emails of users for auditing or complacency requirements.

- Step 1 – Choose Restore Source – Organisation = howtomanagedevices.com.
