Why do these retention policies suck so back compared to the folder managment in 2007? I'm trying to do a simple delete of items that are 30 days or older in the deleted items folder and I can't get it to work for the life of me. I even make a test tag at 10 days just so it would definitely clear stuff. Is there a way I can force it to run? Also do I have to restart the exchange services for it to take hold?? Thanks for the input.
