Exchange 2010 Licensing Eliminates the requirement of Enterprise Client Access License for Mailbox Search

In Exchange 2010, Microsoft had introduced the ability for discovery managers to search mailboxes across an Exchange 2010 organization using Multi-Mailbox Search.

"Along with Personal Archives, which allow you to eliminate the risk from PST files and store historical messaging data in Exchange, Legal Hold, which allows you to preserve data for eDiscovery, and Retention Policies, which allow you to manage email lifecycle, it has been one of the more popular features of Exchange 2010," Microsoft explains.

Multi-Mailbox Search required an Enterprise Client Access License (CAL) for each mailbox searched.

Today, the company announced a Exchange 2010 licensing change that will "no longer require an Enterprise CAL for Multi-Mailbox Search."
