I believe Exchange 2010 Standard works... but you then need Enterprise CALs.

I am not aware of any way to (easily) do what you are asking. MRM is a licensed feature, which is part of an enterprise license.

That said, nothing stops you from making your own powershell script (or other dev tool) to do the specific task you are requesting. Ii would check the following URL:

Note: I meant Enterprise CALs, not the Enterprise edition of Exchange 2007.

You can not install a Exchange 2007 Enterprise Cal on a SBS server.   Because I have SBS prem I can setup a 2nd server run Exchange 2007 Enterprise on it.  Little pricy to fix a simple problem where in 2003 Exchange standard this was easy.

Also when you read the link I posted above Microsoft  makes you think iits just Custom Folders need an Exchange Ent. Cal.  They should just say MRM requires Enterprise 2007

@author  Have you looked here?

To legally use these features, you must have an Exchange Enterprise CAL for each user, NOT Exchange Enterprise version.
