Retention policies in Office 365. We need a policy that will auto move emails to the in-place archive after 6 months. This much i have managed with no problems. What i need confirming here is that we subsequently want emails in the in-place archive to be deleted permanently after 3 years. Do mailbox retention policies apply to the in-place archive, and will a default deletion policy delete emails from the archive after 3 years (if that time frame is configured), OR is the archive separate to the mailbox retention policy and do emails have to then be manually deleted?
