  • Email Address of former employee whose mailbox is to be temporarily preserved

  • Length of time to provide access (requests for longer than 90 days should include details of the circumstances requiring longer access to the mailbox)

Upon the request above, the former employee's mailbox will be converted to a Shared Mailbox accessible by those authorized for access to facilitate the transition process to another employee.
If conversion to a shared mailbox is not requested, former employee mailboxes are removed completely within 30 days of separation.
