In the console tree,
navigate to Organization Configuration > Mailbox.

In the result pane, on the Retention Policies tab,
select the retention policy you want to edit.

On editing, you can add/remove retention tags or you can remove/add exchange mailboxes.

*And for immediate change application
run following command from exchange shell
start-managedfolderassistant -identity mbxname

Great.  Got it.  One more question.  In the policy is it possible to have all new users mailboxes added automatically?

Once policy udpated, you have to apply to mailboxes.

If you want the policy to apply to new user automatically, you have to EMS with combination of:

1. New-Mailbox
2. Set-Mailbox
