Hi all,


we have all user set to default retention rule (MRM). I confused , why is many deletes rules and one year archive.
what if i created no delete just move to Archive after one year. the thing that i'm worries is if i used my new policy, what happened to their old retention rule- what those archive mail will go (1) go back to inbox or (2) get deleted . the goal is remove default policy and use new policy. many thank you in advance

Those are Personal tags, they can be assigned by demand. The Default tag is the one that determines that messages will be moved to the archive after one year, unless a folder-specific or personal tag is applied. For more info review the TechNet documentation: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb430780(v=exchg.160).aspx

Hi Vasil,

can i go to user account and select new custom policy, force existing user use new policy or just modify their existing MRM the way we wanted it to be.

the goal is move their inbox and sub-folder underneath inbox anything older than 1 year then move to online-archive keep forever.

so right now users got MRM,policy this policy active? does this MRM really work? its seemed some users i have seen online-archive and some don't, but when  checked users account they selected MRM on their acc#. so that make confused if the MRM is active or not ? many thanks

Hi Vasil,

the reason doing this is the user kept getting crashed on outlook and the message said OST crashed needed to run repair, and we had deleted the outlook profile and let them resynch from 0365. because run the repaired is not fixed . the other usesr using online mode exchange seemed fine no issue with outlook. only user outlook offline -mode.

many thanks

The policy will have no effect on mailboxes that do not have an archive. If you are having issues with Outlook (too large profile size), you can manually move some items to the archive via OWA, or simply wait for the MRM policy to take effect (you can speed the process up by running Start-ManagedFolderAssistant user@domain.com).

Those are *personal* tags, they are not in effect unless the user specifically selects them. Read the article I linked above and the references therein.

And yes, you can modify the default policy to move everything older than 1 year to the archive, simply add a new "1 year move to archive" *default* tag.
