Again, an updated set of the Office 365 for Enterprise Service Descriptions. Just as in JanuaryFebruary, early March, and late March, I did a comparison of the changes. All major updates are listed below. The document that has received significant updates is the Service Description for Exchange Online Archiving.

Throughout the whole document, the term “personal arhive” has been replaced simply with “archive”, such as here:
The default storage quota for the personal archive is 100 GB for Exchange Online (Plan 2)Archiving users.


Microsoft recommends having the same Single Item Recovery setting for the on-premises mailbox and the archive in Exchange Online Archiving.  To change the Single Item Recovery period in Exchange Online Archiving, a call to Microsoft support is required. The maximum period that can be requested is 30 days for all plans except Exchange Plan 2.


Exchange Online Archiving supports delegate access—that is, the users’ ability to allow others to access and manage their email and calendars. Delegate access is commonly used between a manager and an assistant, where the assistant is responsible for processing the manager’s email messages and coordinating the manager's schedule. If delegate access is set, the assistant has access to the manager’s primary mailbox and archive. Exchange Online Archiving does not support delegate access.
