I am wanting to implement some retention polices into my exchange organization.
What I am trying to accomplish and having a hard time figuring out is that I want to set a rentention policy using Managed content  settings for all users and their Entire mailbox say to 60 days and delete permanately.
But I want to exempt a couple of newly created Managed Folders that have a higher level of renention say 1 year so my users and move email into the custom folders I have created and have only that email be archived.

As you know users can create as many folders in their exchange mailbox as they want. I really need to add a policy to their whole entire mailbox to delete mail but also have a couple of safe folders where that initial policy will not delete any mail. I hope this makes sense.

thanks

You'll want to utilize the Managed Content settings system on the managed folders you are deploying.  http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/compliance-policies-archiving/exchange-2007-messaging-records-management-part1.html has some info on what you need to do.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah I was aware and using Managed content settings but wasn't quite sure how to exempt certain folders. I think I figured it out in the sense in using the Default folders and setting a policy for the Entire Mailbox while at the same time creating a custom folder I am able to apply different policies to the custom folder that doesn't apply to the default folders and vice versa. I think I got what I need. Thanks
