Preventing orphaned response documents when archiving

Some of the applications for which you create archives have hierarchical views. Responses that are not archived disappear from any hierarchical view (are orphaned) but they still exist and use space in your mail file. The Mail Threads view, for example, is a hierarchical view, which means there are parent documents (the original message) and child documents (responses).

About this task

To prevent orphaned response documents, you select the option Do not delete documents that have responses when you set Archive preferences.
