This is my first foray into E2010 retention policies and I am unsure I understand it all completely.
What I am hoping to do is turn off AutoArchive for users within my organization. I suppose many of you have seen this: AA is on, it pops up, and silos a bunch of mails on the user's computer.
Over the years, I've found various ways to turn it off that have mostly worked but they're solutions that affect one install at a time or are inconsistently applied.
Now that the organization is in Exchange 2010, I wanted to know if a retention policy could work.
Our Outlook users are not all internal. Indeed, many of them are using the Exchange server via Outlook Anywhere on machines that are not joined to the domain. For this reason, I think that the Outlook Group Policy templates and settings would not work in this case. Perhaps I am wrong about that?
I should also note we have a couple of Outlook Mac users. No one is running Outlook 2003 or older.
Has anyone successfully turned off AA in any other ways?
