By deleted do you mean "marked as deleted" or really removed? I think the retention checker runs every 5 min by default, there's some pref for it though...
Summary: Cannot delete messages by configuring folder properties → messages not deleted although folder retention policy is set
Magnus, I think that's mean really removed, that's to say : after set the Retention Policy, all the older messages should be removed from the folders.
