Mailboxes in O365 that do not have any retention policy applied?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If a user mailbox has no retention policy applied what does that mean for things like Deleted item retention and RetainDeletedItems?  Does that mean no action is applied to these categories?  Or is there still some default setting that trumps the retention policy if none is applied?
