The report shows items that will expire within the next 60 days by default. Items can be seen with an expiration higher than 60 if the ItemGranularityOnly schema type is being used for indexing and expiration is set to Modified date on the Storage Expiry tab of the Site Properties.
For more information on ItemGranularityOnly please refer to the link in the Related Articles section. The item is displayed because an attachment, that has an older modified date, in the email falls within the range of expiration. This will then show the item in the report that contains the attachment and display the days until the email is expired.
NOTE: If Expiry is run the attachment and email will not be expired until the email expiration date is met. Expiry is run using the database entries and the report is gathered from the index, therefore it will list the email in the report.
