Junk Email - Migrated from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.  IN 2003 I had a policy for Junk Email that when the Mailbox maint. ran the junk emails were deleted from all mailboxes.  How can I set one up in Exchange 2010 and run it so it cleans all mailboxes.
I Created a new retention policy and assigned my mailbox, but nothing gets deleted.  Is this the right way to approach this issue.

Please advise.

Thank you for these articles.  This really does not help me.  How can I run the mailbox maint. manually to test this process.

Create a "Retention Policies Tag" for "Junk folder" with whatever days and option to delete and stuff

Now create a "Retention Policies" add the "Earlier tag to it"
 and then you need to add it to user and also Start-MailboxAssistant

Are you running Exchange 2010 Standard or Enterprise?  Retention tagging is only available in Enterprise edition.

Once retention tags are configured, you may test them against a single mailbox using the following cmdlet:

Start-ManagedFolderAssistant -Mailbox "Alias_of_mailbox_to_process"

@page1985 you are wrong about retention tags being dependant on the version of Exchange. Exchange standard and enterprise are identical in all features and capabilities, with Enterprise just having a higher mailbox database limit.

What you might need is Enterprise CALS. These are on top of the standard CALS. However only Personal tags need Enterprise CALs. Regular retention policies are part of the base feature set.
