Retention policy tag after SP3 on Exchange 2010

This past weekend I installed SP3 on our Exchange 2010 server (it was on SP2). We are using retention policy tags and policies and have been for 14 months at least. After a user reported some missing Tasks, I started doing some digging to find out if Tasks were somehow included in RPT's that were of the "All other folders in the mailbox" type. I came across an article that mentioned Calendar and Tasks were included in the default RPTs (http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2012/08/14/calendar-and-tasks-retention-tag-support-in-exchange-2010-sp2-ru4.aspx) with SP2 RU4. I assume SP3 includes whatever changes the RUs for SP2 included, so this 'feature' came with SP3 too.

So, I am wondering if there is a way to create an RPT (within the EMC) that will either exclude Tasks and Calendar items or allow setting a time period for them to remain in the user's mailbox. I found an article (same one as in the above link) that provided a registry setting on the Exchange server that would disable this feature, but I was wondering if there might be a way to create an RPT instead.

Thanks

Hi,

To answer your first question, Yes SP3 will have all the features included from the previous SPs and RUs.

Secone one, i dont think there is a way to disable it through EMC.

Thanks for your confirmation. I tried the registry "fix" I found in the link I posted in my initial question but old tasks continue to disappear daily when the retention policies are processed by the Exchange server. Does a service need to be restarted for the registry fix to take effect? If so, does anyone know which service?

Turns out the Exchange Mailbox Assistants service had to be restarted after applying the registry fix cited in the article I posted earlier. The tasks are now not being touched by the retention policy.

The expert comment addressed a portion of the initial question, but the more important portion, how to fix the problem, I discovered from my own research.
