Reviewing Domino mailbox policy settings after upgrade

The Domino mailbox policy Advanced setting Strip calendar attachments has changed in Enterprise Vault 8.0. We recommend that you review this setting in your upgraded mailbox policies.

This setting is renamed Strip attachments to non-shortcut items on upgrade.

The setting controls whether attachments are removed from appointments and tasks after archiving. When Enterprise Vault removes an attachment, it now replaces the attachment with a link to the attachment. The default has changed from Off to On.

The value of the setting is not changed when you upgrade.

If you have upgraded policies in which this setting is Off, we recommend that you change the setting to On to save mailbox space.


Turning on Strip attachments to non-shortcut items does not make Enterprise Vault remove attachments from non-shortcut items that are already archived.
