Anyone have information\best practices around email retention policies?
Specifically I am looking for information on terminated employee emails. Currently when an employess leaves, we archive their emails, close the account and keep them forever. We would like to implement a simple policy around how long we keep these.
Educause has a bunch that were developed by universities:

Hi Steve and Robert and everyone!This thread is 4 years old, but I am currently wondering about email retention best practices for nonprofits. We're moving from on premise Exchange and file server (with tape back up) to O365. We're trying to decide if we need to pay for extra services for back up for email and files. We might choose to anyway, for our own needs, but beyond our needs, we're curious about best practices, legality, etc. Any tips or resources on this? Thanks!
