We use the archive solution that came with Exchange and using the default policy of 2 years before it moves the mail to the archive folder. We built a 6 month policy for users who have heavy mail. What we would like to do is see if the user can have the option in Outlook to toggle on a folder and have the option to choose between 6 months and the 2 year policy if at all possible.

i meant you can not edit the policy from outlook, but choosing a different one is what you want i see my bad.
Are you seeing all these policy options in outlook?

Ok let's back up for a second. My first email states that I am looking for a way to toggle back and forwards between policies. Your first email state that I cannot change policies from outlook which is incorrect. I have been doing this from a couple of machines but just figured out that they were in cached mode and one of the requirements is actually being in online mode.  I never said edit a policy which is something I never proposed because you can only do that from EMC or the command line.

I got the issue resolved. The problem was when you change a policy of a client you have to wait until the manage folder assistant runs and then you can see and view the policy from the client, thanks anyway.
