How to apply retention policy RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to apply a retention policy to a shared mailbox. I'm using OWA, but when I try to set the policy for a folder, the only option is 'Use parent folder policy', while '1 year delete' is set globally. I'm trying to create a '1 week delete' policy, but when I add this tag to the policy that's applied to the mailbox, it doesn't show up when I reload OWA. The hint says it will be applied the next time MRM is processed, but how do I make that happen and how will I know when it does?
