How to Restore Microsoft Office 365 Mailboxes

There are two (2) Office 365 Mailbox restore options available in 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 user accidentally deleted a mail from the mailbox and deleted items. This option is valid for many other scenarios like tracing the deleted mails of user for auditing or complacency requirements.

  • Step 1 – Choose Restore Source – Organisation =
