hi team,

can you advise if retention policies for exchange online mailboxes are included in m365 business premium?
i am looking to retain my emails forever to be able to retrieve it if a user deletes it using ediscovery.

can you advise if business premium has these capabilities? as based on this link, https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/servicedescriptions/microsoft-365-service-descriptions/microsoft-365-tenantlevel-services-licensing-guidance/microsoft-365-security-compliance-licensing-guidance#licensing-for-retention-policies

i can see that bus premium doesn't inlcude retention policies for exchange online, however using the smb modern work comparison dowloaded from MS it shows that bus premium includes basic org wide or location wide retention policies.

appreciate your help
