Email Archive and Retention

Our Document Retention Policy defines 56 document type/retention period combinations.  What software/hardware products do you use/recommend  to automatically delete documents according to your policy?  What human intervention is necessary to make the retention/deletion process successful?

I have test driven the Barracuda Mail Archiver, and while this appilance works quite well, it involves (requires) end users to "tag" emails in a certain way that would correspond to the retention policy required.  The mail archiver would then search on that "tag" and would then be able to apply the appropriate retention policy.  

Is there a solution out there that doesn't rely completely on the end user to correctly "tag" the emails?
