go into server configuration, mailbox, and view the properties of your mailbox server
go to the messaging records management tab
make sure you have a schedule created

that should be run from the exch management shell
make sure the microsoft exchange mailbox assistants service is running
check the application log for events from this source

your trigger action is "when moved"
is something moving the messages into a folder? you may want to update this setting to WhenDelivered

this is a jornal email account where mail is journaled to that comes into and out of the information store the rule is meant to delete this mail once its over 30days old but the mail is still there way over 30 days, I have now changed it to when delivered. How long should it take for the mailbox to be emptied of the old mail? as its not changing yet

endital1097Commented:
run "Start-ManagedFolderAssistant" to initiate it
check the app log for events
it will take a few minutes to remove that many messages
