Description

Retention tags are used to apply message retention settings to messages or folders. There are three types of retention tags:

  • Retention policy tags

  • Default policy tags

  • Personal tags

Retention policy tags are applied to default folders such as Inbox and Deleted Items. Personal tags are available to users to tag items and folders. The default policy tag is applied to all items that don't have a tag applied by the user or aren't inherited from the folder they're located in. The Get-RetentionPolicyTag cmdlet displays all the settings for the specified tag.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt432940.aspx).
