Auto expansion of Exchange Online Archive

Hi I have below queries:
1. Can we enable auto expanding of Unlimited archive for the entire organization. Then later on enabling archive per individual users? not all we want to enable right away.
2. Also what happens for mailboxes which have E1. Since Auto expansion is enabled organization wide, is it applicable for E1? E1 can have 50 GB of In-place archiving enabled if enabled.

Hi @GoodResource

1.You can enable auto-expanding archiving for your entire organization. After you turn it on, auto-expanding archiving will be enabled for existing user mailboxes and for new user mailboxes that are created. When you create user mailboxes, be sure to enable the user's main archive mailbox so the auto-expanding archiving feature works for the new user mailbox.

 Set-OrganizationConfig -AutoExpandingArchive

For individual user

 Enable-Mailbox <user mailbox> -AutoExpandingArchive

Please refer to the official documents to get more information:
Overview of unlimited archiving
Enable unlimited archiving - Admin Help


2.E1 license doesn't support unlimited archiving, users will get 50GB storage when their archive mailbox is enabled.
