How to change options on Exchange 2010 Archive Policy Context Menu?

Posted on 2011-02-13

Using Exchange 2010 Enterprise Edition...

When a client using OWA wants to specify an Archiving Policy to an item, they right click it and choose from a list of Archiving Options.  Currently those options are:

Personal Never Move to Archive
Personal 1 Year Move to Archive
Personal 5 Year Move to Archive
Use Folder Policy

I need to add a new option to this context menu to allow employees to comply with management's newest grand idea.  How do I add another option to this Archiving Policy Context Menu?

TIA,
Jason

Thanks for the input, Craig.

Unfortunately Elan's blog post doesn't explain what I need to know - at least not explicitly.

Here are some screenshots of what I want to do:

Archive Policy Menu in OWAThis first screenshot shows the Archive Policy menu as my users see it in OWA.  I need to add a new option to this menu.

Retention Tags Available on the Exchange ServerThis second screenshot shows the Retention Tags present on my Exchange Server.  I want to add the first one (pointed to) to the Archive Policy menu in the first screenshot.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

this is the info you need...

"Personal tags are available to Outlook 2010 and Outlook Web App users as part of their retention policy. Users can apply personal tags to folders they create or to individual items, even if those items already have a different tag applied. In Outlook 2010 and Outlook Web App, personal tags with the Move to Archive action appear as Archive Policy, and personal tags with the Delete and Allow Recovery or Permanently Delete actions appear as Retention Policy"

In Exchange 2010 SP1, users can use the Exchange Control Panel (ECP) to select additional personal tags that aren't linked to their retention policy. The selected tags then become available in Outlook 2010 and Outlook Web App. To enable users to select additional tags from the ECP, you must add the MyRetentionPolicies Role to the user's role assignment policy. To learn more about role assignment policies for users, see Understanding Management Role Assignment Policies. If you allow users to select additional personal tags, all personal tags in your Exchange organization become available to them.
