b'In the real world, most companies will choose to limit the timeframe of an In-Place Hold to a certain number of years. Most typical is five to seven years for Outlook-type items. Microsoft does not charge for data storage with these plans. So, customers can keep an unlimited amount of data per user when they have the appropriate license applied. Plus, a tremendous benefit is that the mailbox will continue to follow the retention strategy even after the license is removed due to a user termination, as long as the Microsoft 365 tenant continues to be licensed properly. Additional In-Place Holds can be used to protect specific data, most frequently this is used to protect data in the event of a pending or proceeding legal issue. Exchange Online offers multi-mailbox search across the entire organization including the information that is being protected by an In-Place Hold. The latest release includes Role-based Access Control Groups (RBAC) so the legal team can be assigned permission to search for any information they need through their Outlook Web Access account without involving the IT staff. Microsoft is moving away from Exchange Online to the Security and Compliance Center. Over the years, Microsoft has provided eDiscovery tools that let you search, preview, and export email content from Exchange Online. However, these tools no longer offer an effective way to search for non-Exchange content in other Microsoft 365 services, such as SharePoint Online and Microsoft 365 Groups. To address this, Microsoft offers other eDiscovery tools that help you search for a wide variety of Microsoft 365 content.6'
