    Hi

    I have read this but just want something clarified please.
    Email Archiving - 11.52 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    If we say have a client with emails for 7 years and now we set it to auto archive for 2 years of emails will the system create a folder in archive dated and COMPRESS or zip the folder?

    This sounds like it will make backups run faster if this is the case. Please confirm as we notice our backups are taking a bit longer than expected recently.

    Also why would it increase diskspace if it is archiving them in compressed format or am I misunderstanding?

    Hello,

    The archiving feature works for all new emails sent/received after the option is enabled. It will not retroactively archive existing emails. Email archives are not compressed when stored on the system. A compressed zip archive of the archives is generated if you decide to download them using the "Download Archive" option in the "cPanel >> Archive" interface.

    Thank you.
