Microsoft Exchange 2013 180 rule

We are implementing the 180 day rule, which will delete all email older than 180 days. On Exchange 2003 we were able to exclude folders created underneath the inbox.

I'm told in Exchange 2013 the rule is universal and you can not exclude any folders from deletion. Every folder created will be parsed and emails older than 180 days will be deleted, no exceptions anymore.

This would be problematic because I can't exclude the certain users from having their email deleted.

Does anyone know of a way to do this? is this accurate? What if the folder is created at the same level as the inbox and not as a subfolder of the inbox?

you can definitely set a retention policy for each folder that is different. for example, my EE folder has a retention policy of 1 week.. simply right click on the folder
retention policieswhatif.. doesn't matter

I'm so sorry for the delay...These look like screen shots from within Outlook no? This was for Exchange 2013 rules.
