Before I ask I would like someone to clarify if by purging a mailbox
will delete it permanently (i.e. not being able to be recovered by
whatever means).  I know that even permanently deleted something will
still leave intact until the IS writes over it.  My question is 1) Is
how permanent is "permanently" deleted something in exchange. 2)  Is
there a software out there that will be able to accomplish this?  The
reason being I was asked by HR to see if this was possible to due a law
suit she read about that involved a company spending a few hundred
thousand dollars to retrieve emails.  My guess is that an email
archiving solution would be the best way to go.  Please let me know.
