Our email accounts usually have a maximum storage size and as an employee, to maintain your Mail box size below the allocated quota, you need to remove your email messages regularly when your mailbox begins to fill up. Instead of deleting these emails, user can save these emails into an archive servers. In other words, user can archive these emails, so that he can go back to them as and when required in the future. Archiving is like moving messages into a filing cabinet instead of putting them in the trash can.
