I would like to know if In-Place Hold features also applies to the users archive as well. For example if a user leaves the company can we put an In-Place Hold on the users archive so we can retain their old archived email as well as their mailbox without using up a licenses?
Also, regarding new feature that Microsoft is offering called inactive mailbox. Does inactive mailbox will apply to user's archive as well without using a license?
Manage Inactive Mailboxes in Exchange Online
It doesn't mention anywhere that Inactive Mailbox will apply to archive. Also, when I am reading about the license, it is says that archiving feature will require license....So, I want to confirm to make sure that if you do use Inactive mailbox feature for archive as well, you don’t need a license.
