All messages are stamped by MRM if a deletion tag in a retention policy is configured in an Exchange Server 2010 environment

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 3Exchange Server 2010 EnterpriseExchange Server 2010 Standard

Symptoms


Assume that you create a Messaging Record Management (MRM) retention policy to delete items in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environment. The deletion tag in the retention policy is for voice mail only. In this situation, MRM unexpectedly stamps all the messages regardless of type. Additionally, you encounter a performance issue if there are lots of message items in the environment.

Cause


This issue occurs because the default deletion tag stamps all the messages at the tag stage incorrectly, even though these messages do not match the message class in the retention tag.

Resolution


To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:
2866475 Description of Update Rollup 2 for Exchange Server 2010 SP3
