I am testing exchange 2010 retention policies, I started off by creating a retention policy tag called empty deleted items, tag type "deleted items" and age limit was only set to 1 day, action was permanently delete. Then I created the retention policy called empty deleted items and after one day nothing was deleted. I found that the policy applied to a test mailbox by running :
Get-Mailbox user | select retentionpolicy
It came back with the policy that I created.
How else can I troubleshoot this?
