I am currently looking at introducing an email retention policy on our users 'Deleted Items' folder. I will probably configure a policy to "Delete and Allow recovery" on items in this folder which are older than 6 months.
My question is.....
What happens when a user deletes an item from their 'Inbox' that is 7 months old? Does it:
A.) Get deleted from the 'Deleted Items' immediately (or at least when the retention policy runs as per its schedule).
B.) Sit in the 'Deleted Items' folder for another 6 months and is then deleted.
I am presuming the answer is A.), but just wanted absolute confirmation.
