Attachment Link on Size
Links to attachments that were subject to an Attachment Link on Size policy will expire 90 days after your migration has been signed off when your existing Mimecast account is disabled. Consequently these attachments will not be accessible using the link in the message in the user's Exchange mailbox or by any external recipients of such a message. If your organization archives with Mimecast your internal users will be able to access the original attachment in the archive using Mimecast applications.
