On Exchange 2010 Retention Policies

As per this Technet Blog entry, Outlook doesn’t know what it’s talking about when it comes to retention policies if you’re running in Cached Exchange Mode. This means that even though the Exchange server is correctly applying your policy, Outlook may well report that your items have expired when they haven’t.

…The conclusion here is that if you’ve applied Retention Policies to any of your folders and the items are being shown by Outlook as expired, but are still there days later, take a quick look at them in OWA or an online mode Outlook profile and see if they really are expired.

Straightforward, understandable, but still annoying 🙂
