Hello,

I am new to Exchange 2013, can someone help me with setting up a retention policy JUST FOR deleted items.  I am kind of afraid to set up anything else at this point, I would like to setup the retention policy to empty the trash after 30 days.   I setup one retention policy, however I am not sure what the tags are and how to make this retention policy apply to just the deleted items.

Thank you in advance.

Good suggestion above.
By using EAC, you can apply the retention policy to empty the trash after 30 days.

Is there an easy way to set all the mailboxes with this retention policy rather than the one at a time get mailbox?

Thank you very much!

Got it. Thanks for the info.. I don't know why but the technotes scared me and it ended up being very easy.  Probably because the conversion from Lotus Notes was a bit of a nightmare, I was afraid to touch anything now that things are working well.. Thanks again!
