Exchange 2013 Deletion Retention Policy on Deleted Items

I've setup two retention policy tags,  one set for Sent Items (delete after 90 days) and another identical one setup for Deleted Items (delete after 90 days).  The sent items one works, the deleted items one doesn't.  Both tags are applied to the same policy.  Does anyone have any insight into this?  Is it a known bug?

This is for 2010 http://ibenna.wordpress.com/2013/02/04/exchange-2010-retention-policy-to-clear-deleted-items/

try it out. Create the tag as given in the article and test it.

Looks like 1/2 down someone mentions that the Deleted Items folder does not use "sent/received" dates and instead goes based on the date that the item was deleted.

I resolved it myself.  The ways its operating is by design,  the policy delets mail after its been in the deleted items for 90 days, not 90 days since it was recieved/created.
