Hello Everyone,
I have Exchange 2013 configured with email retention policies. My end users with Outlook 2016 have noticed that when viewing emails , the retention policy name and expiration date now show up in the reading pane. Is there a way to disable this for all users so that the retention policy is enabled but does not show up on each email in the reading pane?

Thanks

What kind of retention policy is it?

Outlook 2016 (and 2013) can be configured to apply a retention policy to email messages (your situation) and/or to email folders.

The KB artlcle for Office details how to setup either or how to remove a policy.

By default, user can assign personal retention tag to a folder

So you don't want them to appear, you just need to remove the personal tag from Default MRM Policy OR assign user to a empty new MRM policy that consist of no personal tag.

To do so, read https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd362328(v=exchg.150).aspx

Thanks Jian. I was hoping to hide the tag name from Outlook so it does not display. I currently have the tag apply to the entire mailbox so that it deletes emails older than x amount of days. This is controlled so that users cannot remove the tag and disable this. I was just wanting to hide the name is all.
Thanks
