Download and Install

To use email archiving with Entourage, you will need to download the Entourage plug-in.

How do I know if an item has been archived?

Messages older than 60 days are archived. Unfortunately, there is no graphical representation in Entourage that an item has been archived. Usually, a message that has been archived will show as plain text only, without graphics and formatting.

How do I recall messages in the archive?

Simple!  Follow these steps:

  1. Highlight an archived item.
  2. Locate the archive toolbar. If you do not readily see this toolbar, click the system tray icon on the apple menu bar and select "Show Toolbar."

  4. Enter your Loyola username and password to access your vault.
  5. You can now navigate and perform a search on your archive via this website.
