Online Archive Access in Outlook for Mac
There doesn't appear to be any access to the Online Archive area using the new Mail client. This will be a problem for me and my users that make use of this storage area.
Of course we need access to online archive!
I rely heavily on the Online Archive and cannot use "New Outlook" for this reason.
It would be ridiculous to not allow access to already archived emails and would mean all users of "new" outlook copying their entire online archive back into their mailbox - why do that !?
Please enable online archive for the new version.

I see status is planned. Any further updates on status of this? As the new Outlook for Mac draws nearer and nearer I am concerned that this is still not available.
Any email client is absolutely useless if you can't access emails you've stored in your folders.
Not only bring back Online Archive access for Mac, but make it's search better/superior. The ability to search across multiple folders when one has an auto-expanding archive is paramount. Without good search, what good is an archive?
what happen to my mail ? i open outlook and i got nothing ? How do i import my old mail and archive ?
Does this apply to the default Mail App on Mac?

In Outlook for Mac, the "Online Archive" shows under the user's primary mailbox as a top-level folder.
In Outlook for Windows, the "Online Archive" shows as a separate mailbox. We would like the user interface in Outlook for Mac to match Outlook for Windows to:
1. Make it easier for user moving from Windows to Mac and reverse.
2. reduce documentation/training
3. Improve consistency across the platforms.
I manage around 2700 Mac clients today.
You no longer see the in place archive for office 365 mail accounts, so if you have sub folders to archive mail from your inbox you now have to log into the browser version to do this.

My online archive doesn't show up in the sidebar but is still there in "old outlook".

Please, consider to show the Online Archive Folder.
I have to open the web Outlook to see old messages!!!
