Cleanup Exchange 2010 Journal Mailbox

We have an Exchange 2010 standard server with a journal mailbox setup.  I setup a retention policy tag to permanently delete, tag type Inbox, with an age limit of 365 days.  I have the retention policy applied to my journal mailbox.  However, the old email isn't being deleted from the inbox.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
