I have setup a test very simple test retention tag and policy (using the EMC):

Tag (called 'Deleted Items  - 7 Days'):
Deleted Items - 7 days - delete and allow recovery
Policy (called 'staff'): Contains the 'Deleted Items  - 7 Days' tag

I have added one mailbox (testuser)  to use that staff policy

The user has lots of messages dated May 2010 in his deleted items and they are still there despite running:
start-managedfolderassistant testuser

I have deleted log files in:
c$\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Logging\Managed Folder Assistant

and a new log file does not get created running:
start-managedfolderassistant testuser

what's going on? where's the logging? why are the deleted items still there?

Thanks but that first link seems to be exactly what I have done:

set a default policy on deleted tems to delete and allow recovery.

where is the loggin for this so I can see what is going on?

Also where can retention policies being applied to messages be viewed in OWA2010, I can see them in the full version of Outlook 2010 (there is a new 'Policy' tab)  but not OWA?

In OWA need to go into options.
The retention polices work, message is stamped by the MRM and then delted x days (set in poilicy tag) after that stamp.
The only supported actions are ‘delete permanently’, ‘delete and allow recovery’ and ‘move to archive’ , others are for backwards compatibility with Ex2007.
