Archiving from O365

I have enabled live mail archiving for users of my O365 domain.  Will bcc mails also be archived?

Yes. To understand the working, let us look at the following example of the connectserver.co.in domain which is hosted on O365 and the corresponding Vaultastic domain is connectserver-co-in.vaultastic.com.

Users on O365 and the corresponding Vaultastic users are as follows:

1. amin@connectserver.co.in, amin@connectserver-co-in.vaultastic.com

2. meera@connectserver.co.in,  meera@connectserver-co-in.vaultastic.com 

External user
