Journaling in Exchange 2007 with managed folder policy


  • I have setup a Managed Folder Mailbox Policy to mark messages as past a 730 day retention period with journaling enabled. I'm using this policy simply as a test for my archiving appliance. The issue is when I run Start-ManagedFolderAssistant, it journals a copy of every item in the mailbox instead of only the items past the retention period. This is the only policy I have applied to this mailbox. 

    Here are the managed content settings of this policy:

    Message type: All Mailbox Content
    Length of retention period: 730 days
    Retention period starts: When delivered
    Action to take: mark as past retention period
    Journaling: Forward copies to my "archive" journaling account in msg format

    Any idea what would cause it to journal every item in the mailbox (including items within the retention period)?
