Finding details of Managed Folder Policy in Exchange 2010


We are using Exchange 2007 SP3 /2010 SP1

For 2010, we are still testing so only have a few IT people on there - we haven't set up Retention Policies yet so are using Managed Folder Policies still. I notice that MFP's can only be viewed using Powershell now.

I want to check what Managed Folder settings a 2010 user has.

So I do:

1. Get-mailbox -identity User1 | fl

Under ManagedFolderPolicy I can see the MFP, which in this case is "Marketing Users"

Now, I run:

2. Get-ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy -identity "Marketing Users" | fl

Now, Marketing Users has a couple of Managed Folders that are associated with it, the one for All Folders is called "All Folders". I'd like to know what the Managed Content Settings within this Managed Folder is...does anyone know how I can do this?  I've tried Get-ManagedFolder -identity "All Folders | Get-ManagedContentSettings but this throws an error.

Any ideas on how to find this out?

If you want to know all the managed content settings applied to a mailbox run the following:
(Get-ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy (Get-Mailbox UserName).ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy).ManagedFolderLinks | ForEach-Object { Get-ManagedContentSettings -FolderName $_.Name }

Thanks, so what is the property/ value I'm actually looking for that shows the retension?

And do you know why this doesn't work? "Get-ManagedFolder -identity "All Folders | Get-ManagedContentSettings "

The syntax you are using is not correct as the folder name is not the identity of the managedcontentsetting
