I assigned policies to the mailboxes per database using the shell. For example'
get-mailbox -database "Mailbox nameofdatabase" | set-mailbox -retentionpolicy "Policy 2 (6 and 8  months )"

User are supposed to open outlook, go to assign policy and chose a policy for each outlook folder but most user are not doing it.

How do I see which users have assigned what policy to what folder?

How do I assign a specific policy to inbox, sent and deleted item folders for a user or entire database of user?

How do I assign a specific policy to ALL FOLDERS (or inbox, sent and deleted item) for a user or entire database of user?

Do this Microsoft build in feature  works well or it is problematic?

You could create multiple Retention Tags for Inbox, Sent Items, add them to a new Retention Policy, and apply it to the users selected by you.
