Retention Policies Exchange 2010 sp1

EX2010 sp1
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?

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.

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?
