Managed Folder Policy and Exchange 2010

Hi

We're running Exchange 2007 SP3 and Exchange 2010 SP1 in co-existence.

In 2007, we have Managed Folder Policies that create the following folders for users with the corresponding retention periods

Keep 1 Year
Keep 2 Years
Keep 5 Years

The rest of the Inbox is purged after 90 days.

But I can't see where this is set on 2010? I've looked at Technet, and it only talks about using the EMS, is this correct, there is no GUI front end to Managed Folders Policies in 2010?

Secondly, I have moved a test mailbox over to a 2010 server and the Managed Folder it had for Keep 2 Years has gone.

Can anyone tell me :

i. What happens to a user's MFP and their Managed Folders when they are moved from 2007 > 2010

ii. How can I check if there is a Managed Folder Policy applied for a 2010 user?

iii. If a mailbox was on the Keep 1 Year MFP in 2010 and then when they moved to 2010 this was removed and they had no MFP applied to their mailbox, what happens to the Managed Folder they had in their Outlook and all emails in there?

try removing the Managed Folder Policy for the mailbox you are moving.

chech policy is no longer in place..

When a policy is removed from a mailbox the Managed Folder and subfolders reverts to normal Outlook folders status..

move the mailbox, check contents after move..
