About Virtual Vault for Outlook users
If your administrator has enabled it, Outlook displays your vault in the Navigation Pane. This feature of Enterprise Vault is called Virtual Vault. A Virtual Vault appears like a mailbox folder or personal folder in the Outlook Navigation Pane. Figure: Example of a Virtual Vault shows a mailbox and a Virtual Vault.
The contents of the selected vault are shown in the Outlook Navigation Pane. You can open items in your vault and perform the normal Outlook actions on items, such as forward, reply, move, and delete.
A Virtual Vault always shows you what is in your Vault Cache rather than what is in your online vault. A Virtual Vault may not be identical to your online vault if recent changes have not been synchronized.
Depending on how your administrator has set up Enterprise Vault, you may be able to move items into your vault for archiving. If you have permission to move items into your vault, the Virtual Vault includes these two search folders:
Could Not Archive
Lists items that Enterprise Vault could not archive when it synchronized your Vault Cache with the online vault that is associated with your Outlook mailbox.
Lists items that you have moved or copied into your Virtual Vault and that are awaiting archiving. The folder does not include items that Enterprise Vault could not archive for any reason.
Note the following points about Virtual Vaults:
You may be able to view the contents of shared archives and delegate archives in your Virtual Vault, but you cannot modify the contents.
A Virtual Vault cannot contain public folder items.
You cannot modify items by, for example, changing the content or read status, adding or changing a flag for follow up, and so on.
All items in your Virtual Vault have a status of read.
You may be able to move, delete, and rename Virtual Vault folders. However, you cannot do this if the folders exist in your mailbox or your administrator has designated them as retention folders.
You cannot display the properties of a Virtual Vault folder.
