Hello dinesh,

The Mailbox policy handles the archiving setting for the mailboxes, the Desktop policy handles the user experience and interaction with the Enterprise Vault environment through the Add-In, Vault Cache and Virtual Vault.

Here are some technotes:

I think you should refer to Tonys earlier suggestion and look at seeing if the company you work for can get you in symantec lead Training for Enterprise Vault. 

You can read a general overview about training here:
