The retention policy for permanently deleted items is 14 days. Office 365/Volmail accounts are not backed up by Microsoft, and OIT is unable able to restore files from backup should they be inadvertently deleted.
You will retain your Volmail account indefinitely after leaving the University.
Before you graduate or leave the university, we encourage you to setup your Volmail password options BEFORE your NetID has been deleted from the UT Directory. Your NetID will be deleted from the UT Directory one year after graduating or leaving UT. If you forget your password or it becomes corrupt, you will be able to create a new password. OIT will be unable to reset your password once your NetID has been deleted from the UT Directory.
