This section contains topics that enable you to administer the messaging policy and compliance features that are available in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. These features help you manage the distribution of information in your Exchange organization and comply with regulatory and legal requirements to store e-mail messages sent to and from specific groups or individuals. The following topics give you the information that you must have to manage these features:

Using Exchange Hosted Services

Messaging policy and compliance features are enhanced by or are also available as services from Microsoft Exchange Hosted Services. Exchange Hosted Services is a set of four distinct hosted services:

  • Hosted Filtering, which helps organizations protect themselves from e-mail-borne malware

  • Hosted Archive, which helps them satisfy retention requirements for compliance

  • Hosted Encryption, which helps them encrypt data to preserve confidentiality

  • Hosted Continuity, which helps them preserve access to e-mail during and after emergency situations

These services integrate with any on-premise Exchange servers that are managed in-house or Hosted Exchange e-mail services that are offered through service providers. For more information about Exchange Hosted Services, see Microsoft Exchange Hosted Services.
