exchange personal archive


we have exchange 2010 SP3 enterprise license

i want to configure personal archive with different policies  

for a test i create new data base called archiveone . then i create retention policy tag to take any email older more than 1 day to archive . then i enabled the archiving on one of our users mailbox . then i added this user to this retention policy

so after this configuration i expect all emails older more than one day will be moved automatically to archive folder but nothing happened . should i have to wait for one day then take a look or why the old email still in the inbox . any advice ? or maybe i did some mistake during this test

kindly advice

This is a great article to start from:

In Exchange 2010 RTM, the Managed Folder Assistant runs on a specified schedule. By default, it's scheduled to run daily from 01:00 to 09:00 (1:00 A.M. to 9:00 A.M.).
you might have to wait a while, see at the link above how to check if retention policies are enabled and set.

thnak you after i issued this command it works

Start-ManagedFolderAssistant -Identity "Chris"

but can i ask you another question

do you know  commercial exchange archiving software with ability to let the users to access there archived emails from there outlook  

or you think the built in personal exchange archive more than enough

i don't know if you know about open text if can do such thing or not

The user is on SP3 of Exchange 2010, so it is not a scheduled task but a throttled task. The managed folder assist is set to run at all times but only when available resources are found.

In your situation when  you add someone to a retention policy you should run Get-Mailbox <username> | Start-ManagedFolderAssistant, as this will queue the mailbox up for the next pass.

Retention time is also not always calculated on the delivery time.. I would read this article since it sounds like you are using a default policy tag which is tagging all items within the mailbox..

And another article, although a bit dated but still somewhat accurate (that I wrote).
