I have an Exchange 2013 and just starting to put on users. I attempted to set a simple retention tag for the deleted items folder. I am testing myself. I am on Outlook 2007. I set the tag from EAC as:
Name: Test delete in 1 day
Apply tag to following folder
Delete and Allow Recovery
Nothing is deleting. I cannot find information in the "Deleted Items" properties. I do see in OWA when right clicked
Use Parent Folder Policy
Test delete in 1 day.
More information on this mailbox is that I do NOT have "In Place" archiving because of the different Exchange mailbox CAL needed. Plus needing an added mailbox Dbase. It looks like that is the only way to archive folders like "inbox and "sent". So I set up my Outlook account to auto archive to an Archive.pst. My fear is this possibly has something to do with it. I wish I could manage all archive retention from the server but that is another story. So it there is anyplace I can check to see why I cannot perform the delete from "Deleted Items" would be greatly appreciated.
