My hopes are that someone can shed some light for me. We are running Exchange 2010 Standard - We currently have 5 DAGS all mounted, none of which are setup for Archiving. My question, legal has sent me a request for an email that I will need to find via a query between two staff sent within a date range...By running the query and opening/saving the email in question for legal does it remove the only copy of it from the lit hold mailbox(s)? Is this a one and done type of thing?

Thank you

Hi,

I haven't work with litigation hold, but that does not sound logical. By doing so, someone could delete something that is under a hold, which should prevent email from being deleted..right?

Anyway, you can always create some email, with bogus content and put it under a hold, and see what happends.

Regards,

Lit Hold keeps a copy of all emails on the back-end, an end user can delete away in the local mailbox all they want without affecting what is on Lit Hold, which is why I am hesitant to search for this email via a mail control search - As I do not want it removed from the back-end Lit Hold repository in the event it is ever needed.

Take a look at the below links which outline exactly Litigation Hold works. It also shows a table of retention for each type of recovery.

Provides an overview that was helpful in understanding, the answer to my question is "No" it does not remove it - tested out by going through the motions.

Thanks all.
