Retention policy not working for deleted items
Posted on 2013-01-09
We are in the middle of an Exchange migration from 2007 to 2010. We currently are running Exchange 2010 SP2.
I am trying to test the retention policy for cleaning up items in the deleted folder. Normally this is set to 30 days, but for test purposes I have created a tag with the following properties:
Tag type: Deleted Items
Age Limit for retention: 2 days
Action to take when age limit is reached:Delete and allow recovery
I applied this policy to my mailbox 3 days ago.
I already had many items in my deleted items folder that were deleted prior.
Going through OWA all my deleted items are marked:
- Retention Policy: Test cleanup (2 days) Expires: 1/8/2013
- This item will expire in 0 days
The expected behavior is for the items in my deleted folder to be removed.
