Exchange 2010 Message Deletion by Script

I am trying to figure out how to do the following:

Exchange 2010, 5 databases, about 200 users.

We have a data retention policy that will require IT to remove all email from every mailbox prior to a specific date, except for any message in a custom folder (called retain), that is not under any default folder.

I'm sure this can be done in a ps script, which I'm not very familiar with. I don't see a way to do it using MRM as the defined policies have set timelimits, unless I'm missing something there as well?

Thanks in advance.
