I believe that you have discovered or uncovered one of the weaknesses of
SharePoint.  To the best of my knowledge they are not able to address
Records Retention issues without the use of an external tool.  My
recommendation would be to work to find an Electronic Records Management
tool that will work within SharePoint.

I am looking specifically for information regarding the handling of
retention and legal holds within SharePoint Services.

During a conference call with some team members working on SharePoint
services (not Portal) along with a Microsoft representative. The MS
representative indicated that SharePoint was being used for short-term
collaboration , but as of now they do not have a built-in way to handle
retention and legal holds.

As you know people will start using SharePoint services for more than
short-term collaboration since it?s so easy and can cross multiple
locations and therefore, we need to proactively consider retention and
legal holds. How are  other companies handling retention of records and
legal holds within SharePoint services?  We currently have people using
SharePoint services on the development server.  It has not been
approved for production yet until retention and legal holds can be

any advice or experiences are most welcome
