Exchange 2007: Managed Content Settings not deleting messages

I'm trying to delete emails that are in the Junk E-Mail default folder on Exchange 2007.  I've created Managed Content Settings to delete them after 180 days.

I've set the MRM schedule to run, plus I've run the mailbox folder assistant manually using "Start-ManagedFolderAssistant".  

Nothing seems to be deleting.  If I log into OWA, I can still see Junk Email in my folder older than 180 days.

What am I missing?

If you have only just set the policy, then it will come in to effect in 180 days time.
That is because Exchange doesn't know how old those messages are, and it needs to stamp them for the policy to apply.

So it's from the day I created the Managed Content Settings?  Now anything coming into the Junk Email folder will be marked?

Is there a way to delete old messages?  I want to apply this same rule to "Deleted Items" to delete old emails.

If what you're telling me is correct, then there would be no way to delete old emails.
