Recently I presented at a SharePoint user group and on the session evaluation forms a few attendees ask some additional questions. Below are a few of the questions and the answers.
Q: If a document is marked as a record in a document library, can a site owner or a SharePoint administrator delete that document library?
A: No. The option to delete the document library is removed from the library settings page.
Q: If a document is marked as a record in a document library, can a site owner or a SharePoint administrator delete the site?
A: Yes. A site owner or site collection administrator can delete a site even if it contains a document library with documents declared as records. It is recommended that a process is put into place to automatically archive any site prior to deletion.

A: SharePoint can be configured to work with any standards compliant SMTP service.
