Active directory user msExchELCMailboxFlags attributes shows if in Exchange 2010 retention hold is enabled

Exchange stores the interesting parameters of the mailbox in the Active Directory user object. To lookup if the Exchange retentionholdenabled flag is set or the litigationhold is enabled you only need the correct attribute of the AD user object.
Selecting the users from AD is often much faster than running a query in powershell on Exchange, specially when you are dealing with remote sessions.
To find the information which field contains google for AD schema definition + Exchange, the fieldname or something similar. although I knew the attribute name I wasn’t able to find anything on the  content. But a nice person and helpful soul, brought the redemption and provided the info to me. So I think this information might also be useful to someone else. The attribute is a bitfield:


                                   None 00000000

   ExpirationSuspended 00000001

                 ElcV2 00000010

DisableCalendarLogging 00000100

        LitigationHold 00001000

    SingleItemRecovery 00010000

  ValidArchiveDatabase 00100000
