I want to delete (allow recovery) all mail after it has been in the deleted items folder of a user for 90 days. I have set up the various manged folders etc and running the managed content settings command:

Set-ManagedContentSettings -identity "deleted items - 90 days" -AgeLimitForRetention 90 -RetentionAction deleteandallowrecovery -RetentionEnabled $true -TriggerForRetention whenmoved

With the TriggerForRetention set as whenmoved It does not delete the messages after they have been in the folder after that time. If I set 'whendelivered' it does delete them 90 days after the delivery date of the message. I want them to actually exist in the deleted items folder for 90 days before they are deleted....what am I missing?

Would like to concentrate on the keyword ElcMoveDate

ElcMoveDate is set when the managed folder assistant runs against the folder. This is basically the date and time from when the retention period will start. Once this is set your retention period is one day, 24 hours later this item will be deleted (if that is what you have set in your managed content settings) after the managedfolderassistant runs again. It doesn’t matter if that item had been in the deleted items folder for 3 months, until it has the ElcMoveDate stamped on it, it won’t start counting against the retention period

Thanks but I thought with Ex2010 sp1 the Managed Folder Assistant is 'throttle based', so it is always running?
