Are there plans to make these settings enabled based on organizational settings or by default when licensed user mailboxes are created:

 

1. Mailbox litigation hold. Our company has a default setting of "unlimited". But when we create new mailboxes, we have to run scripts to setup Litigation hold based on our company settings.

 

2. Mailbox audit log settings - the default is just 90 days. Most companies like ours need the audit settings to be 365 days.

 

Can new mailboxes be set to these settings by default:

 

Set-mailbox -identity MailID@business.com -AuditEnabled $true -AuditLogAgeLimit 365 -DefaultAuditSet Owner, Delegate, Admin

 

Thank you.

@Emy Loanzon, This is a new ask for us, currently we don't support the ask. We will look into it in future. Thanks!!

If you create an Office 365 Retention Policy and apply it to all mailboxes it will do the same thing. You don't need to set the litigation hold option per mailbox anymore. Your retention policy would be 'retain forever'
