Managing Managed Folder Retention
I'm trying to do something that MAY be out of scope. Either that or I don't FULLY understand how to configure everything with managed folders, so here's the scenario:
We're running an Exchange 2010 sp1 environment and EV 10 here, and want to create two new folders that we archive off and then delete on a time limit.
Folder one: Users move things to this folder, and it's archived after 6 months. After 4 years, we delete items from the vault, never to be seen again.
Folder two: Users move things to this folder, archived to vault after 6 months, then items stick around until the end of time or the user decides to delete them.
Inbox and all other folders: No action required by the user, items stick around for 6 months then get archived off. After one year, they're deleted from the archive.
I THOUGHT the best way to do this was to set up managed folders in Exchange and have EV run off of the settings from there for the first two folders, but with MSFT moving away from managed folders, this seems less feasible. Also, I'm having trouble wrapping my head around the rules. Can anyone provide a good answer to this? I'm likely overthinking it, but it's always great to get other opinions.
