Removing Exchange 2010 Implemted Retention Policy and tags

I currently had a retention policy enabled to delete INBOX, SENT and DELETED ITEMS older than 13 months. I now have been instructed to remove this. I went to the retention policy via EMC and went to properties of Policy and deleted all mailboxes from it. Not sure if there is anything else I have to do.

I also noticed the previous emails have a retention policy applied and not sure if they still will get deleted or do I have to remove those on existing emails as well. Thanks in Advance

No, they will not get deleted. There is basically two steps to take:

1) Remove the mailboxes from the retention policy
2) Force start the Managed Folder Assistant against the mailboxes to immediately remove the tagging (Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited | Start-ManagedFolderAssistant)

What will happen is that the managed folder assistant will not see a retention policy applied to the attribute "ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy" and then remove all taggings on the messages along with stop processing the mailbox for further retention actions.
