So you have a mailbox manager policy setup to do the > 60 day purge?  Can you provide some details on how you have the policy defined?  It'll be a bit hard to help you troubleshoot otherwise.

Has the policy ever worked?

I have reconfigured the policy and I will let you all know if it had worked.  I currently created 2 recipient policies, one for inbox and sent to move to delete over 90 days and another one to delete the delete box over 60 days.  both of these are using domain users group for the recipients.  thanks
