Have you assigned the new policy to the mailbox in question or have you just created it? Double-check if the corresponding tags are actually assigned, by selecting the 'manage another user' functionality and checking Organize Email -> Retention Policies.

Otwerwise just restart Outlook or check in OWA after you have run the assistant.

From my past experience in Exchange Online, emails that already exist in the mailbox when the policies are applied can take a few days to be tagged with the default policies. You can force the process by logging in to outlook, selecting the inbox, selecting all the emails, then right clicking and selecting the option to apply policy tags.
