Microsoft Exchange is the mail platform of choice for a number of corporations, with many planning their migrations to Office 365 which uses Exchange as the core of its email functionality.

Not all versions of Exchange are alike, and they don’t all have the same tools to export data. In fact in some cases the meaning of certain discovery focused terms change from version to version. We thought we would quickly put together this short list of Microsoft links for how to export email data from Exchange.
Many of the eDiscovery enterprise class software packages now allow for direct connectivity to Exchange/Office 365 to identify, preserve, and collect the relevant mailboxes, or the appropriate content. But in the end sometimes you just need to provide the entire mail box to legal counsel, or to eDiscovery vendors.
