3.13 Litigation Hold

Litigation hold prevents a mailbox and its associated data from being deleted until the hold is released. This will prevent items from being removed from disk by Mailbox Deletion, Item Deletion or by users with the Delete Messages rights. If Data Removal is run and disk space does not increase it may be because items are under Hold. Items not removed because of a hold will be shown in the RetainServer log.

Add Item

Individual or groups of items may have litigation hold applied by a user with the litigation hold right, for example the admin user.

In the user's mailbox, select the item or items and click on the Litigation Hold action to apply the hold.
