LCS Archiving results when there is IM between two users having different settings


I was reading through some old documents today and found this table for differing Archive settings. I believe this is one of those things that is really helpful when compliance is needed and you need to know the net result. For the global customer this is even more important as some countries mandate archiving and others mandate no archiving. I suspect that for those customers you are already working with our partners in the Archiving space. For the rest I hope this is helpful. (by the way I don't know how to clean up the formatting as I pasted this from a word doc, I have found that trying to clean that stuff up takes too long and typically is never 100% so forgive the data).
