How to apply a retention policy to a TASKS folder? RRS feed


  • Hi,

    Refer to this document about Default folders that support Retention Policy Tags.

    To create an RPT for the Tasks folder, you have to use the Exchange Management Shell. For more information, see New-RetentionPolicyTag

    Command like this:

    New-RetentionPolicyTag -Type tasks -Name Tasks -RetentionAction DeleteAndAllowRecovery   -RetentionEnabled $false -AgeLimitForRetention 180

    Then you will see this retention tag in EAC. Add this tag to retention policy and assign this policy to user mailbox. 

    Note: In Exchange 2013/2016 and Exchange Online, a DPT also applies to the Calendar and Tasks default folders.
