Enable Unread items archive that are in the past

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have a question for anyone who can help me.  We currently have an archiving policy which is to "archive items older than 6 months and not younger than 2 weeks.  It is currently set to NOT archive deleted items and unread items.  If I then enable "archive unread items" and the unread items are older than 6 months, will these items be archived?

As per policy rule, unread item older than 6 months should be achieve if check ‘archive unread items’ is present. If you want to see the results immediately then synchronize the mailboxes from archiving task properties then run it report mode to check the log and later on run in normal mode.

Hello Gavin,

Yes. Those unread messages will be archived once the mailboxes are synchronized to apply the new archiving policy settings and the archiving task runs again.

I hope this helps.
