How can we improve compliance or protect your users better in Office 365?

Implement sensitive data ediscovery searches in Exchange Online

Sensitive data searches for ediscovery currently work only in Sharepoint and One Drive. It also works for DLP in Exchange. This lack severely limits the usefulness of eDiscovery in Security and Compliance for Office 365.

    This is critical. I was extremely disapointed to learn (after waiting 2 weeks for a resolution to a support case) that this wasn't in place. Email is one of the most common workloads that gets shifted first to the cloud, contains a bunch of PII data, and is the most common vector for infiltration, which means its the most common product we have to notify for data breaches.

    In addition, if you run a PII search on the exchange data, instead of getting no results, you get back every single item in the mailbox - terminally dumb behaviour.

    If it doesn't work (which it doesn't), it would be great to get an error message, or at least no results when the match doesn't work properly.

    Refer support case #12487439.

    I understand that this kind of search can be resource consuming, but maybe an option of restricting to at most 20 or 50 mailboxes would still be very very useful.

    This is becoming critical to search mailbox using the sensitive types. Heard from the support team that this is currently being tested, any Idea when this will be rolled out?
