Retention Policies set but files not deleting Items Exchange 2010

Exchange Server 2010 SP3 RU8 64 bit
Windows 2008 R2 64 bit

Created 3 retention Policy Tags
1. Clear Deleted Items Age Limit 14 days Action Delete and Allow Recovery

2. Delete Junk E-Mail Age Limit 14 days Action Delete and Allow Recovery

3. Clear Sent Items Age Limit 45 days Action Delete and Allow Recovery

In Outlook Clients When I click on the folder Deleted Items, Sent Items Junk E-Mail I click on Policy and I see the Policy named from the retention tag.

I do get event Id 10027 every so often showing

             TotalItemsMovedByPersonalArchiveTag:  0

But I see no logs in this folder  D:\program files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\v14\logging\Managed Folder Assistant

The main problem is that I have items in the three folders older than the retention policy age days.

Example I have entries dates in 2014 still

I was hoping that the Retention Policy with the correct tags would clean up these folders.

I was hoping to see the logs to help determine what is going on.

Thanks for responding

I used that same article to do my setup.

I have two questions here.

1. Why do I still have emails in my folders when the retention policy tags are set at 14 days?

2. Why am I not seeing any Log files for Retention Policies?

I believe I have the Tags and Policy setup and assigned properly

I found this

Trying these commands

Set-Mailbox –Identity JSmith –RetentionPolicy “IT Department Retention Policy”
Set-MailboxComplianceConfiguration –Identity JSmith –RetentionAutoTaggingEnabled $True
Get-MailboxComplianceConfiguration –Identity JSmith

Set-MailboxComplianceConfiguration  and Get-MailboxComplianceConfiguration     are not valid cmdlets

What  am I missing here?
