Auto Archive Sent Item after 90 Days

Were are in the process of migrating from Symantec Enterprise Vault to Exchange 2013 Archiving.

We have an in house Financial Dept that Auto Archived all sent Items older than 90 days when using Enterprise Vault.

Now they are on Exchange Archiving, and I cannot seem to figure out how to do this in Exchange 2013.  There are over 90 Users in that Dept and I certainly do not want to setup Auto Archiving 90 times.

MS is telling me this is the only way,  IN the Exch2013 ECP/Compliance Mgmt/Retention Tags I did create a tag to archive items older than 90 days and applied it to the test policy that is on my mailbox.  However that did not work.....  

Any ideas how I can get this done without having to touch 90+ workstations?

From Powershell:

Enable-Mailbox "Bart.Simpson" -Archive -ArchiveDatabase "Mailbox Archive 01"
This will enable mailbox archive and store the archives in the archive database specified.

If you want the archive stored in the same mailbox as the user account, you can omit the command -ArchiveDatabase "Mailbox Archive 01" from above.


To verify:
Get-Mailbox "Bart.Simpson" | fl name, *archive*


Name                    : Bart.Simpson
ArchiveDatabase         : Mailbox Archive 01
ArchiveGuid             : c39fb785-00d3-4d52-ba42-447b731002a4
ArchiveName             : {Online Archive - Bart Simpson}
ArchiveQuota            : 50 GB (53,687,091,200 bytes)
ArchiveWarningQuota     : 45 GB (48,318,382,080 bytes)
ArchiveDomain           :
ArchiveStatus           : None
DisabledArchiveDatabase :
DisabledArchiveGuid     : 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000

archiving is already enabled on these users, the issue is archiving sent items after 90 days.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Oh, well then why didn't you say that in the first place!  (I know, you did.)

This would be done through Group Policy.

Download the Outlook GPO templates, then you'll find the settings under:
User configuration\Administrative Templates\Microsoft Outlook 2010\Outlook Options\Other\AutoArchive

We wanted a solution that ouwl only archive the sent items automatically but seems the only option we had was the entire mailbox so we went that route.

The solution provided to manage the archive using Group Policy worked - as the question author stated:
