MRM policy and folders

Our users all have a folder created in their Mailbox for message organization and retention (done by the previous admin).  When our messaging system was Exchange 2003, we were able to create (add) an additional folder in our mailbox manager settings to apply a retention to this folder.  Since this is not a default Exchange folder, how can I apply retention policy to this folder in Exchange 2007?  Do we have to create this as a Managed Default Folder so that a folder content setting can be created and added to the mailbox policy?  If so, if we create a new Default Folder, will this appear in the users mailbox?  A folder of this name already exists, we just need to be able to manage the retention of items for this extra folder.

Hello,

I'm not sure if you want to apply similar settings in E2K3 or E2K7
But in E2K7 you may need to create a manage custom folder and create new Managed Content Setting

Please refer following

Create a Managed Folder Mailbox Policy

Thanks Jabri,

We are working in Exchange 2007, but that is not the issue.  We have tried creating a managed custom folder and this does get created, but we are unable to apply folder content to a non-system folder because it does not appear in the list.  I have read these articles some time ago but they do not apply.

found that a "new" Default Folder needs to be created using "All other folders in mailbox".  Since this is a Managed Default Folder, a Content Setting can be applied and added to the policy.  This unfortunately, based upon your Content Settings will apply to all other non-Default Folders created by Exchange.  You cannot apply this to a single user created folder within the mailbox.
