Microsoft Reverses eDiscovery Decision Because of Discovery Mailboxes

by Tony Redmond

Microsoft told us some months ago that they would block the creation of new eDiscovery cases in Exchange and SharePoint. A course reversal has happened because of the humble discovery mailbox, which Exchange uses as a target for eDiscovery results. The block has lifted for Exchange but remains for SharePoint. It will eventually happen for Exchange but Office 365-wide functionality is better than workload-specific features.
