    Securing information after someone is fired (in HR terms, let go with good reason) is often important, especially if the now-terminated employee is suspected of some form of misconduct.  Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2013 offer a range of methods to secure and protect mailbox data but software features are useless unless they are executed properly within a well-documented and tested process....More
