A question which is asked quite often is how to find out which policies are assigned to a user. It is quite easy to see this in the VAC, as follows:
- Expand the Site node
- Expand the Targets node
- Right click on Exchange, and choose ‘Display Policies Assigned to Mailboxes’
- Filtering can then be done and a search performed. The results will be shown as per the screenshot below:
Note: It is possible to see the Mailbox Archiving Policy associated with each mailbox by running the Archiving Task in report mode, and reviewing the resultant report, but that doesn’t show the other policies, and incurs the overhead of having to scan the mailboxes.
