Notes on snapshots

Daily snapshots are generated for the previous day; daily snapshots expire after 31 days.

Weekly snapshots are generated each Monday for the previous week; weekly snapshots expire after 1 year.

Monthly snapshots are generated on the 1st of the month for the previous month; monthly snapshots never expire.

Weekly and monthly snapshots have an extra column called that indicates how many days are in the period.

Weekly and monthly snapshots contain per-day averages for usage-based statistics (number of messages received). To get the total for the week or month, simply multiply the per day average by the number of days in the period.

For some values, the weekly and monthly snapshots just contain the last state of the mailbox (for example, if a mailbox was forwarded on the 30th, the monthly snapshot will show it in a forwarding state).
