Configuring email retention policy is not a simple feat these days. Email retention requirements evolve quickly, with new and updated regulations issued frequently, and GDPR has added a whole new layer of retention and archiving compliance.
While complying with regulation is critical, email retention policy must also be informed by the needs of legal teams for fast e-discovery and granular litigation hold, as well as the need for IT administrators to monitor mailbox size to optimize storage requirements.
