Retain Business Documents
Businesses to define standard retention policies for Gmail and chat messages. Once a message reaches the end of the retention period, disposition is automatic to ensure compliance with retention policies.

Message holds help ensure email and chat messages can be preserved beyond their standard retention period for a legal matter or an investigation.
