How to best set up Retain with Exchange 2013


This is a masterpost that points to other articles that are specific to this module.

Retain can archive from Exchange, and if you have migrated to Exchange you don't have to create a new Retain server but continue using the old one and even allow users to have access to both their old mailbox and their new Exchange mailbox.

Make sure you have the latest version of Retain and have installed the appropriate patches.
