If an existing primary email address that has archived messages is removed from the service, and that same address subsequently set up as an alias for a different primary mailbox, that new primary mailbox will automatically include all historical (and new) messages sent to that alias address. For example, let's say that email@example.com retires and is replaced by firstname.lastname@example.org. In that case, the email@example.com address may be removed for some period of time, then re-established as an alias address of firstname.lastname@example.org. All historical (and new) messages sent to or from email@example.com will be automatically included in the archive for the new primary address of firstname.lastname@example.org.
