We have a default retention policy that archives all folder contents after 2 years. I am trying to stop the Notes folder from being archived. According to this TechNet article there is no way to prevent archiving of the Notes folder from the server or from Outlook. Users must do it from OWA. But, when I go in to OWA and right click the Notes folder and click Archive Policy, my "Never Move to Archive" personal tag does not show up. All the other Personal Tags that have archive periods do appear, just not the one with the "Disable this tag" option set. So, how do I stop Notes folder from being archived?
Please run the below command from exchange management console:
New-RetentionPolicyTag “Prevent Archival of Notes” –Type Notes –RetentionEnabled $True –AgeLimitForRetention 24855 -RetentionAction PermanentlyDelete
Then open the EMC refresh, so that the policy can appear in the retention tag tab. Then change the tag to disable. before adding it to a retention policy.
