Showing retention policies

The aox show retention command shows which message retention policies applies to a given mailbox, or to all mailboxes.

This shows that there is a single, simple rule in place:

$ aox show retention Global: retain 365 days: Unconditional

In the next example, all mail is retained at least 7 days, mail in /archive/… ist retained at least a year, and mail is automatically deleted after 90 days (or when the retention period expires, if longer):

$ aox show retention Global: retain 7 days: Unconditional delete 90 days: Unconditional /archive: retain 365 days: Unconditional

You can also look at only the policies that apply to a given mailbox:

$ aox show retention /users/nirmala/inbox Global: retain 7 days: Unconditional delete 90 days: Unconditional

As you can see, the third rule is not displayed, since it does not apply to /users/nirmala/inbox.
