OWA is the only Outlook client that supports "Likes." This begs the question how OWA supports likes and where the information about likes is stored. Some probing using easily accessible tools reveals the answer. You might think that the answer only interests Office 365 Trivial Pursuit nerds, but it's actually of real interest to eDiscovery investigators.

@Tony Redmond on the other hand, if trivial pursuit o365 did exist, I would surely want you on my team! :p

@msExchangeDude  Thanks... but I am likely to get as confused as anyone else with all the stuff that has happened over the years.
