Microsoft Exchange 2007 includes features that support the goals of records managers and corporate compliance officers. Because the Exchange 2007 features that support records management were designed to easily integrate with the records management features of Office SharePoint Server 2007, e-mail messages can be sent to Office SharePoint Server 2007 and stored as records where you can manage their retention, classification and expiration from a central location.
