This is an introduction on how to use Retention Policies in Outlook for Windows. To tag a message item, right-click on the message select ‘Assign Policy’ and select the desired policy. We can see here that this policy has been added. To add a policy to a folder, right-click on the folder, select ‘Properties,’ select ‘Policy,’ and again select the desired policy. This will also add the policy to all messages within the folder unless that message was previously tagged. This has been an introduction to Retention Tags.
