In Exchange 2010 if I create a retention policy and assign the 5 year delete tag to the policy, will the users mailbox size never be reduced when they delete items during this 5 year period? Or, are the deleted mailbox items moved somewhere else on the server during this 5 year period?
It seems a user's mailbox is 1.6 GB, but when I look through their items, I just can't see how it adds up to 1.6. I tried to use a powershell script I found online to create a report of all items in the mailbox, but had trouble trying to get the data exported to a file. If anyone has any suggestions on how to accomplish this, it would be helpful.
