ManagedContentSettings

Exchange 2010
I have and existing folder policy applied to all mailboxes:
ManagedContentSettings –FolderName “Deleted Items” –MessageClass * –Name “DeletedItemsContentSetting” –RetentionEnabled $True –RetentionAction DeleteandAllowRecovery –AgeLimitForRetention 15

Need to have another one to apply to some of the mailboxes w/ "-AgeLimitForRetention 45"

Attempted to create a new one:
New ManagedContentSettings –FolderName “Deleted Items” –MessageClass * –Name “DeletedItemsContentSetting2” –RetentionEnabled $True –RetentionAction DeleteandAllowRecovery –AgeLimitForRetention 45

Giving me an error MessageClass already exist.
Any suggestions?

Only one managed content setting can be applied for specific message type within a managed default folder.

To complete it you might have to create another managed folder specific for 45 day retention.

1. Create a new managed default folder (Example - DeletedItems-45DayRetention)
2. Create a new managed content setting for this new folder.

You can use New-ManagedFolder command to create a new default folder. Powershell help will give all parameters for this command along with example.

get-help New-ManagedFolder -detailed

And i guess you know the command for New-ManagedContentSetting.

I'm just going to get rid of the Managed Folder Mailbox Policy.
Will recreate the same setting using Retention Policy instead.

Have you tried creating the retention policy? The error that you posted was for managed folders.

Below is the fix. But I've replaced ManagedFolderMailboxPolicies and recreated with Retention Policies instead. Thanks!

[PS] C:\>New-ManagedFolder -Name "DeletedItems-45Day" -DefaultFolderType DeletedItems

Name                      FolderName                Description
----                      ----------                -----------
DeletedItems-45Day        DeletedItems              ManagedDefaultFolder


[PS] C:\>New-ManagedContentSettings -FolderName "DeletedItems-45Day" -MessageClass * -Name "DeletedItemsContentSetting2"
 -RetentionEnabled $True -RetentionAction DeleteandAllowRecovery -AgeLimitForRetention 45

Name                      MessageClass              ManagedFolderName
----                      ------------              -----------------
DeletedItemsContentSet... *                         DeletedItems-45Day


[PS] C:\>New-ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy -Name "DeletedItems-45DayMailboxPolicy" -ManagedFolderLinks "DeletedItems-45Day"


Name                      ManagedFolderLinks                             MailboxPolicyFlags
----                      ------------------                             ------------------
DeletedItems-45DayMail... {DeletedItems-45Day}
