    Did you choose "When item is moved to the folder"?
    If you did, than change it to "When delivered"

    You also need to create a Managed Folder Mailbox Policy and assign it to the mailboxes, if you haven't done so already.

  • Hi Gulab,

    I follow the article but the messages remain in Junk Mail folder.

    Must I run another command or do anything else?

    The steps made are:

    1. Created Managed Content Settings for Junk Mail folder (with When delivered.... option selected like Martina told me to do)
     2. Created Managed Folder mailbox policy to include the three folders
     3. Assigned the policy to test users     -------What do you think it is the problem?  Thanks

  • Did you run the command Start-ManagedFolderAssitance on the exchange server?

  • Hi Gulab,

    I ran and in Server Properties, in Messaging Records Management I schedule the maintence to run each 15 minutes.

    I did not create a Custom Folder, I used the Junk E-Mail folder.

    In event viewer, there is no error e Exchange Assitants is running.

    Thanks.

  • And mails are not getting deleted? Did you check the user Mailbox Properties if the policy is applied on it?
