I have some Outlook 2010 client that have a retention policy of "Delete after 6 months" set, however all my mailboxes on the exchange server (2010) have different retention policies.   I've checked GPO and did not see any settings for the retention policies in there.

I'm not sure what I'm missing but how I can narrow down where the local clients are getting the the policy settings?

David,  

I have set the retention policy on the exchange server however it is not being deployed to the client.  The client still shows a 6 month delete all.

Once you create a retention policy you have to apply it to the mailboxes
