Retention policy and group memberships

Contributor

Hoping someone can clear this up for me...

 

If I have a retention policy applied to a group (distribution or Office 365), and after applying the policy I add a new user to be a member of that group, is it true that the retention policy will not apply to that new user?  And if so, how do I (or can I) get it to apply to new users?

 

Thanks for any clarification!

It only adds the *current* members of the group, as mentioned for example here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/policy-and-compliance-retention/set-rete...

 

If you want to include newly added users, you have to reconfigure the policy.
