1. assigned E3 license to user and enabled legal hold
2. user resigned and profile was deleted - E3 license was removed while legal hold is on
Question - can ediscovery still retrieve all user mailbox data in legal hold?
Hi @Marvin Oco
Deleting a user with mailbox having holds or litigation hold will result to "Inactive Mailbox" in Exchange Online. Inactive mailboxes can be searched/included in eDiscovery cases.
Note also that if the hold applied to mailbox is released, inactive mailbox will be deleted permanently. And of course, after permanent deletion mailbox becomes unsearchable.
