Just about to setup retention policies and apply to all my users (split across 4 databases). I plan to apply policies using shell
Get-Mailbox –Database “DatabaseName” | Set-Mailbox –RetentionPolicy “AllUsersPolicy”
is there any harm running that command as a scheduled task every day to assign policy to any new users?

No harm, but shouldn't be a need if the policy is selected when you create the users.

If you are just doing that to make sure, you should be fine.

A quick related question, if none of my retention policies include a 'move to archive' action will I need to 'enable archive' for any of my users? Will the retention policies (delete and allow recovery) still run and work?
sorry if need new post.
