A mailbox plan is a template that automatically populates multiple mailbox properties and assigns default permissions to users. You use mailbox plans to provision mailboxes for a particular user population with a common default configuration. For example, in Microsoft Live@edu, you can assign a mailbox plan to students, which hides their contact information from the shared address book. This mailbox plan can help satisfy some of the privacy and compliance requirements of acts such as the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) in the United States or the Data Protection Act in Europe. You can assign a different mailbox plan to faculty members so that their contact information is displayed in the shared address book.
