I tried running deletion policy for delete immediately for one user only. It presently is priority #2. It didin't delete the older emails that were older than 365 days.
I am including print screens of mailbox policy and advanced for username selection.
I had closed the question cause I thought it by following the kb article I would be all set, but it didn't run successfully.
Also when I am sure that user 46-spare emails are deleted sucessfully by policy, then I want to run it for all users. What criteria do I use, If i leave it blank then I assume it will run for all mailbox users

Once you create this policy you need to go to the properties of your mailbox server(s) and select the Mailbox Management tab
There you will schedule your mailbox management process

make sure that the first policy does not apply to this mailbox otherwise it will stop processing and never hit the second

I changed the priority on policies  so that 1yr deletion for user 46-spare1 runs first.
I will update ticket tomorrow to see if it works.

Still no difference on deleting older messages on the one user, after I changed priority on policy to run first. I really need to have all mailboxes have their messages deleted after 1yr but I want to make sure it works for atleast one user before I run it.
